Community Energy Services has been available in Kingfield since Fall 2009. The program gives homeowners the tools and resources needed to save energy and money in their homes. With winter approaching now is a great time to prepare your home. To get started, simply attend a free energy presentation where you will be able to schedule a customized home energy visit. During the visit we will install materials, perform a blower door test and give you personalized recommendations. In addition, you will be provided with information on rebates and financing. Join over 4,000 Minneapolis homeowners who have already participated!
