Non-profit Green Opportunities‘ Energy Team will provide an energy audit and make recommendations for weatherizing your home, providing savings on your energy bills and increasing the efficiency and health of your home or building. For example, in a collaboration with the Housing Authority of the City of Asheville, Siemens and Home Energy Partners and GO Energy Team, they weatherized 1200 public housing units in eight developments in Asheville. The housing authority will save $757,078 this year, guaranteed. If they don’t save that amount, Siemens will write them a check for that savings–that’s how well weatherization and building performance improvements work.
Oh, and also, Green Opportunities hired and trained people who live in public housing for the project, and plan to keep them employed by weatherizing private homes and commercial buildings. Been thinking about an energy audit on your home? For $300, GO Energy Team will test your home’s performance, and make recommendations for how to make it more efficient. They will work with you (and your budget) to determine a course of action for weatherizing your space. Call Marcus Renner for more information: 713-3346.
