* Existing appliances must meet age requirements to qualify for replacement. Co-pay may be required for landlords who own appliances and pay tenant utility bill.

How the Program Works

Once we receive your application, one of our Energy Savings Assistance program contractor will visit your home and help you determine if you are eligible for the program and help you complete all the necessary paperwork.

If you’re accepted, your contractor will come back out again for installation of home improvements, and you may receive an additional inspection of your new improvements.
