New and Better Ways of Bringing Efficiency to Greater Cincinnati
Energy efficiency can be difficult to promote because the wide range of its benefits tend to resonate differently from one homeowner to the next. We have recently partnered with Empower, a new residential energy efficiency provider that is starting an innovative model to work with local communities in increasing the number of home energy upgrades completed.
Empower and the Energy Alliance co-hosted a forum last week to discuss new ways of bringing residential energy efficiency to Cincinnati homeowners. More than a dozen local contractors, many from the Efficiency First Home Performance Network, were on hand to share insight into their process and explore new models for delivering high value improvements to local residents.
Coming This Summer
In partnership with the Energy Alliance and the City of Cincinnati, Empower plans to begin its rollout this summer. The team will build on the City’s aggregation model to take energy efficiency opportunities to the next level. Empower will draw on cutting edge data analysis and an intimate understanding of customer behavior to create a package tailored to the needs of individual homeowners. With cost effective financing, these new projects will allow energy savings to pay for the cost of each project.
Stay tuned for more information on the Cincinnati roll out and how you can bring Empower to your community.
