What to expect from your in-home energy assessment

During the energy assessment the Home Energy Expert will ask you to sign a Participant Agreement and will verify the documents used to prove program eligibility. With your permission, they will then install qualifying measures throughout the home such as ENERGY STAR®-certified LED light bulbs, efficient showerheads and faucet aerators, and clothes drying racks.

Photographs of the appliances and the interior and exterior of the home will be taken as part of the assessment. The Home Energy Expert will ask questions about additional items in the home that use electricity, and provide education about how to reduce electricity use, lower bills and make your home more comfortable.
