To celebrate the 100th home energy audit through the Summit Home Energy Insight campaign, Ciel Power surprised these Summit homeowners with an energy efficient lighting upgrade.
Summit's Home Energy Insight campaign encourages residential energy audits that help homeowners discover where and how their home is using energy inefficiently and what can be done to reduce their home's consumption.
The City of Summit had a goal of getting at least 100 local residents to complete home energy audits. So, a town-wide program was organized to procure audit services in bulk, at a greatly reduced rate, and then promoted to residents.
Summit's Home Energy Insight campaign streamlines the process of choosing a home energy auditor for consumers, making the process more understandable, accessible and safer. The City of Summit issued a Request for Proposal from certified home energy auditors that specified a comprehensive package of energy audit measures to be performed and requested the best price for the assessment.
Residents are offered the chance to have an energy assessment done on their home for just $49 (well below the market rate of $300-$500). For many people, getting an energy audit sounds difficult or is not even on the to-do list because they don’t know about it. Many New Jersey homeowners are unaware that significant incentives are available to them to upgrade insulation and replace inefficient heating and cooling equipment.
