The Home Energy Solutions Program provides weatherization assistance to any gas/electric heating customer for a reduced fee, including envelope assessments (blower door and duct tests) and repair. A contractor authorized by your local utility conducts the inspections and modifications.
The Home Energy Performance Program provides rebates based on cost and energy savings for combined, multiple energy efficiency measures and upgrades. Single or multi-family projects can are eligible. Multi-family projects can include common area or individual unit measures, and may involve more than one decision maker for projects. Costs associated with switching fuels are not covered, and measures must be replacing operational inefficient equipment. Contact CEEF or your utility for more information on these programs.
