Strategy EI2.6: Work with energy utility companies and cooperatives to promote residential energy audits using free online tools, such as ENERGY STAR and Duke Energy, or a professional energy auditor.

Strategy Description

Residential energy audits help homeowners link energy costs to specific energy uses within their households. Audits can recommend appropriate energy conservation, operations, and maintenance procedures and estimate labor and material costs for energy retrofits. Audits not only build awareness on energy consumption at the household level, but provide strategic steps to reduce costs for homeowners.
