NEWS FOR THE WEEK OF 10/07 /2019

Fall into Savings with a Money-back 
Home Energy Audit
City Water, Light, and Power wants to remind its customers that fall is a great time weatherize your home ahead of the upcoming winter heating season. The utility's $25 Money-back Home Energy Audit program can help homeowners get started with where to make improvements, which will increase comfort by reducing drafts, while also lowering energy usage. The audit assesses a home's efficiency from the basement to the attic and determine the best, cost-effective improvements the customer can make. The audit takes about two hours to complete in most homes and is conducted by CWLP Energy Services Office staff. This program is available to anyone owning or residing in a residential property that receives metered electric service from CWLP.
Many customers can achieve savings from reduced energy usage soon after an audit. "Many of the improvements we can suggest are low cost and easy to implement," said CWLP Energy Services Manager Gary Hurley. "Helping identify and seal small air leaks and changing lighting from an incandescent bulb to LED are just two easy ways to start seeing immediate savings with the investment of just a few dollars."
The Money-Back Home Energy Audit is a good deal for CWLP homeowners beyond future bill savings. "Not only do we rebate the $25 audit fee to the bill after improvements are made, we also provide customers another $25 back towards the purchase of weatherization materials," Hurley said.
At the time of the audit, the customer will receive a weatherization starter kit to allow them to start making improvements right away. Following the audit, customers will receive a detailed audit report prioritizing the recommended improvements along with information on available rebates showing the savings estimates achievable from each. The audit is covered by a one-time $25 fee added to the customer's CWLP bill, but if any or all of the improvements listed in the audit report are made within one year of the initial audit with follow-up confirmed by ESO, the $25 will be rebated back the customer. Also, the customer can receive another $25 rebate for weatherization materials purchased and installed. To make an appointment or for more information on the CWLP Money Back Home Energy Audit or any other assistance programs, customers can call the CWLP Energy Services Office at 789-2070, by email , or by clicking here .

CAPS Classes
October 23-25, 2019

It's not to late to sign up! 

Most people want to stay in their own home despite aging or becoming disabled. Remodelers and therapists certified in CAPS are trained to work with the homeowner to make it a safe and comfortable place for them to live for many more years. The three classes required to earn the CAPS designation detail the technical, business management and customer service skills essential to success for remodelers and therapists interested in incorporating modifications designed to enable homeowners to stay in their homes safely for a longer period of time. Endorsed by AARP, the CAPS designation has gained increased recognition in the marketplace and has become more popular among occupational therapists, Veterans Administration caseworkers and others who do business primarily with the aging population.
