Energy / Weatherization
A Helping Hand
Providing services to help
with heating and cooling costs
No matter what time of year, energy costs can be high and significantly impact low-income residents. ACCESS Energy and Weatherization programs help address the immediate needs of low-income people as well as long term solutions to save energy and reduce energy consumption.
Low-Income Heating Assistance
Through the Low-Income Heating Assistance Program, eligible households can receive a one-time payment toward their winter heating bill. Last year over 7,500 households were served. This is a fuel blind program and help is available for all heating types; electric, natural gas, propane, oil and wood.
The Energy Education Program provides valuable tips and efficiency products to help make your home more efficient. People can attend one of our conservation workshops to learn simple cost effective ways to lower household energy use and utility costs. This is a hands-on workshop and all eligible attendees receive a personal conservation “start-up” kit upon completion.
Low-Income Weatherization Program
Eligible residents can apply to have their home weatherized
at no cost. Each year approximately 400 households are served.
Once an applicant from the waiting list is contacted,
an energy audit is performed to determine the best weatherizing measures based on the existing condition
of the home and the funds available.
Types of services provided may include ceiling, wall and floor insulation; energy related minor home repairs; infiltration reduction; heating duct improvements; and energy conservation education.
