How the Energy Alliance program for homeowners works
Much more than a simple walk-through, this 3 to 5 hour comprehensive assessment performed by an Energy Alliance-approved contractor examines air leaks, mechanical equipment performance and safety, insulation levels and air quality. Normally a $400 to $500 cost, the Energy Alliance is able to offer this service for $50 to eligible homeowners in Hamilton, Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties for a limited time. (The $50 cost is reimbursable when investing in a home energy improvement.)
Home Energy Incentives - Save 35% on Energy-Saving Upgrades
The Energy Alliance’s grant funding provides an incentive of up to 35 percent to reduce the cost of each measure on the energy assessment report. In addition, the Energy Alliance also offers low interest loans, financing programs and connects homeowners to other available federal, state and utility incentives. No income restrictions apply.
The energy assessment identifies measures to reduce utility bills, the cost of each improvement and the return on investment (through energy savings) starting with those that have the highest impact per dollar. Typical measures can include adding or replacing insulation, sealing air drafts and upgrading to high efficiency furnaces.
