Green Your Home Contest

WHAT: Kickoff event for the Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance (Energy Alliance) and Uptown Consortium to announce the Green Your Home contest, a non-profit home energy improvement initiative for single-family homeowners residing in the Uptown neighborhoods.
WHEN: Wednesday, May 11, 2011 10 a.m.
WHERE: Clifton Plaza 333 Ludlow Avenue
Rain Location: Aquarius Star Restaurant 329 Ludlow Avenue

WHY: The Green Your Home contest kicks off May 11 in an effort to alert Uptown residents to the work of the new Uptown Green Initiative and the energy efficiency mission of the Energy Alliance.
During the Green Your Home contest, each registrant will connect to the online home energy comparison portal that allows homeowners to assess their current energy use and measure their home’s performance. One registrant from each of the five Uptown neighborhoods will win a free energy assessment which includes a three to five hour visual inspection and a blower door test to measure the extent of air leaks in the home. Diagnostic tests will be performed to ensure that combustion appliances are operating safely. Depending on need, the grand prize winner will receive a free full home energy efficiency improvement that may include insulation, air and duct sealing, and equipment improvements, plus up to a $1,000 in energy efficient windows, totaling up to $7,500 in home energy improvements.
There are no income requirements for participation and single-family homeowners in Avondale, Clifton, Corryville, Clifton Heights, Fairview, University Heights, and Mt. Auburn are welcome to enter.
