Energy Efficiency & Rebates

Free Home Energy Assessments

Have you thought about how to use less energy, but aren’t quite sure where to start? How about with a free home energy assessment?

Yep, you read that right—our home energy assessments are absolutely free. One of the first steps is for you to chat with an energy use advisor. They will help you identify your current usage patterns and make suggestions for improvement.

If we need to do an in-home assessment to solve your issue, we might use a thermal-imaging camera to pinpoint exactly where you’re losing energy, whether it’s a door frame, windowsill, or a spot in your basement you might not think to check. We’ll also make suggestions for lighting and other equipment, and we’ll show you how to use your SmartHub app to track your energy usage in real-time. Contact our member services department at (231) 486-9200 to get started!
