The most important step for homeowners is getting a Home Energy
Review from LEAP.
What is a Home Energy Review? LEAP’s own Certified
Building Analyst visits your home to give it a “check up,” then provides a report highlighting the
biggest opportunities for energy savings. This review will identify the key, and often missed, areas of your home which offer the greatest cost savings to you on utility bills, and energy savings for us, in our goal to reach 10%. Home improvements stemming from this review provide both the resident and our community the greatest benefit, that is why they are so key.
It gets better. For the Energize!250 campaign, the City of Charlottesville has allocated a limited amount of funding to help support these reviews. While a Home Energy Review usually costs around $100, it will only cost $25 thanks to a $75 rebate provided by the City and LEAP. To qualify, you must own a single family,
owner-occupied residence (this includes duplexs & townhomes as well).
