Lower Valley – Higher Comfort Programs
In an effort to help you use energy wisely, Lower Valley Energy is currently offering a variety of innovative conservation programs. Through these programs, our goal is to help you save money and improve the efficiency and comfort of your home.
Would you like to know if there are improvements that you can make for a more energy-efficient home? An Energy Audit consists of measuring the energy efficiency in your home and recommending cost-saving enhancements for more effective use of energy. The cost of an energy audit is $100 (for homes up to 3,000 sq. ft., and $200 for larger homes), however, this amount will be refunded if you choose to implement any of the recommended changes OR if Lower Valley Energy finds that no improvements are needed. Call to schedule your audit now with one of our energy specialists and let us help you save money and increase your comfort.
