Energy-Saving Home Improvements


What is the Community Connections Program?

The Community Connections Program can help you reduce your electric bill and keep your home more comfortable in both winter and summer.

Depending on your electricity usage, Community Connections could provide you with an in-home energy use evaluation and energy-saving home improvements such as:

- Sealing air leaks in attic walls or foundations
- Attic and/or wall insulation
- Appliance testing and possible replacement
- Electric water heater inspection
- Faucet aerators
- Energy education

Specific improvements you are eligible to receive will be determined during your home energy evaluation. No payment is required for these installations/services.
