Thank you all our wonderful volunteers who came out this past Saturday to help us promote Go Green, District 18! After a training session where the volunteers learned the ins and outs of the In-Home Energy Evaluation process and financial incentives available to homeowners, a group of about 25 people hit the streets! We went door-to-door in Hillsboro-West End and Belmont-Hillsboro, knocking on doors, talking to neighbors, and spread the word. We are happy to report that because of the efforts on this day, we signed up close to 40 homeowners!
Each of those homeowners will now have an NES In-Home Energy Evaluation where they will be given a list of energy efficient recommendations to improve their homes. The evaluation is $150, but that fee is reimbursed if the homeowners spends at least $150 on recommended retrofits. AND, the homeowner will receive reimbursement of their expenses to make changes. They will be reimbursed 50% of the cost, up to $500. AND, for those homeowners that make the changes before the end of the year, they’ll also be able to take advantage of the federal tax credits. Not to mention their energy bills will start to go down!
We are having another Go Green Volunteer day on Saturday, December 4. We’d love to have you join us! We are making an impact on Nashville’s urban neighborhoods and we want YOU to be a part of it! Sign up here.
