Improve Your Home and Save Energy

We provide cash incentives, services and referrals to qualified contractors to help you make energy-saving improvements or install solar for your home.

Success Story: Nestor Campos

Nestor’s home electric bills are now 60 percent lower—with an estimated annual savings of $660—thanks to improved insulation, sealed air links and an upgraded heat pump. “The house is so different. Now, it’s very comfortable,” said Nestor.

Multifamily

Controlling energy-related operating expenses is a priority for property managers. We can help with cash incentives for energy-efficient upgrades at existing multifamily properties with two units or more and for construction of new multifamily properties.

We work with manufacturers of all sizes and industries to realize energy savings year over year. For all of your energy projects—equipment and lighting to more complex enhancements to manufacturing processes—we can help you save energy and money.

Success Story: Sulzer Pumps

Acting on a corporate challenge to achieve savings of 3 percent in operations around the world, they made upgrades that save an estimated $99,000 annually on energy bills—far surpassing their goal by achieving 18 percent reduction through upgrades to lighting, roof insulation and heating systems.

Agriculture

We can help agricultural businesses reduce energy costs. We provide cash incentives for irrigation, greenhouse, nursery and other energy-efficient equipment you purchase directly from vendors.

Success Story: Bauman’s Farm & Garden

Rick Bauman knew he wanted to trim energy costs, and when his equipment supplier told him about Energy Trust’s services and incentives, he didn’t delay. The result? More than $26,000 in annual energy cost savings from insulated greenhouse walls and updated heating systems.
