RESIDENTIAL Energy Audits:
VIRTUAL AUDITS – Sign up by July 31, 2020, to determine if you are eligible to have a virtual audit of your home. Your ‘auditor’ will guide you to send some photos of specific parts of your home and will come up with suggestions for efficiency improvements. You will receive up to 100% of the recommended and approved cost of insulation when it is safe to have the work done. This work will need to be completed by December 31, 2020. You will also receive an energy savings package delivered to your doorstep including LED light bulbs, faucet aerators, smart power strips, and programmable or wifi thermostats.

If you live in a town with a municipal utility:
Homeowners, renters, landlords, contact your local municipal utility as you may be eligible for virtual audits with high incentive programs offering significant benefits.
If you currently receive fuel assistance:
Contact your local Community Action Program to sign up for an audit when the state allows in-house audits again. They currently do not offer virtual audits. The energy savings benefits of their programs can be very significant so it is very worthwhile to get on their list for an audit.
