“The upgrade resulted in my even billing dropping $100 per month in the first year.
My primary interest in doing the upgrades were for comfort and energy/cost savings. Also, as a green business owner, I felt it necessary to ‘walk the walk’.”
What a painless, truly painless process.
Kudos to everyone involved in this endeavor. I hope that other municipalities take the bold step that the city of Forest Park has taken.”
“The audit revealed that my best options for improving energy efficiency in my home was to concentrate on insulation, which included air sealing, rim joist insulation, attic insulation, and wall insulation.
I fully expected that the insulation would affect my home’s ability to hold heat and air, but was pleasantly surprised at the soundproofing results and another completely unexpected result. I own a two story home and anyone who has a two story knows the temperature differential between floors. The second story is usually 10-15 degrees warmer than the ground floor.
“By ensuring that its loans are being made to established standards for residential energy efficiency financing
The combination of their resources with those from our Environmental Awareness Program will allow our residents to identify and make energy efficiency improvements to their homes which will benefit them for many years.

“[Kenton County’s] initial investment was relatively small. That the Energy Alliance has done with that investment is simply extraordinary.
not just from them, but for property values, resale values, and of course the savings in energy they recoup from making that investment.”
The challenge at this point is how we continue the progress that has been made. How do we take these 1,000 homes that have become more energy efficient and convery that into 10,000 homes? Our thanks to [the Energy Alliance].”
