For the past two years the Clean Energy Corps has been administering a program called Neighbor to Neighbor Lighting. This program lasted for 19 months and helped move towards an energy reduction goal of 20%. The Clean Energy Corps went to 539 homes changing out 8,830 light bulbs. This led to an overall reduction of 441,365 watts and nearly 380,000 kwh. They helped people save nearly $68,000 and helped them reduce their carbon foot print by 306,204lbs of CO2. This free program helped those homeowners save on average $127 per year.
Out of the 539 homes that participated 346 signed up for a home energy assessments. Customers readily saw savings of up to $300 from those visits. From there customers were encouraged to get more upgrades such as HVAC or insulation where they saw savings of up to 25% combined with the home energy assessment. It’s great to see N2N residents taking action to make their homes more energy efficient!
