After choosing desired improvements, residents can contact a (Re)Power trade ally to discuss installations. Energy efficiency upgrade areas include:
- Building insulation
- Whole house air sealing
- Boilers, furnaces, and hearths

See program web site for more information.
This Program is part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Better Buildings Program. The DOE has awarded over $500 million in federal funds to more than 40 states, local governments, and organizations to administer local programs targeting a variety of building types. Combined, these local programs are expected to improve the efficiency of more than 170,000 buildings through 2013 and save up to $65 million in energy costs annually.
