This week the State of Indiana launched its new electric energy efficiency programs, known as Energizing Indiana. The programs are designed to help meet the state’s aggressive electric conservation goals and lower the energy bills of Hoosiers in their homes, schools and businesses.
One of the programs offers an on-site home energy assessment in which an Energizing Indiana energy advisor performs a walk-through of an energy customer’s home, installing basic energy saving measures, such as fluorescent bulbs, low-flow showerheads and insulating water pipes and heaters. A review of the energy assessment and a report detailing additional ways the customer can achieve greater energy savings will be provided at the end of the appointment.
Starting next year, the State of Indiana plans to offer 3,500 of these audits at no charge. They will be awarded on a first come, first served basis without any income stipulations.
With this in mind, I encourage you to reach out to those in your community who can benefit from this program. These customers would include any homeowners living in older, inefficient homes and those who may be challenged to pay their monthly utility bills.
For more information on Energizing Indiana, you may visit their website at www.energizingindiana.com. Thank you for your assistance in helping your fellow Hoosier families take advantage of these energy and money saving programs.
