Learn how to reduce your energy use and save money. KFNA has teamed up with the Center for Energy and Environment, CenterPoint Energy, and Xcel Energy to offer Kingfield homeowners Community Energy Services (CES), a full-service residential energy program. As a participant, you can receive information about installing low-cost or no-cost energy savers in your home, and have access to tools and financing if you are ready to make larger investments to reduce home energy use, such as insulating, sealing bypasses, and installing new windows.
Community Energy Services provides:
· FREE educational workshops to teach homeowners how to lower their energy use and save money;
· Low-cost items for immediate savings, which may include low-flow showerheads, setback thermostats, compact fluorescent light bulbs, gasket seals, door sweeps, faucet aerators, pipe insulation, and attic hatch weather stripping;
· Home energy visits from qualified professionals who will identify additional ways for residents to save, including a blower door test. Receive up to $400 in services and materials for a co-pay of only $20. And, if you schedule and complete your visit before the end of 2009, the Kingfield Neighborhood Association will reimburse your entire $20 co-pay;
· Personalized energy use inventory for the last 12 months and feedback the next 12 months, to measure the effectiveness of measures taken. Participants are also allowed to compare their energy use to that of their neighbors also participating in the program (confidentially, of course);
· Financing, incentives, and rebates for those wishing to complete larger projects such as insulation or furnace replacement.
