Home Weatherization Assistance
To help consumers weatherize their homes and save on their energy bills Poudre Valley REA has partnered with the Colorado Energy Office to offer a free Weatherization Program to residents of Boulder, Larimer and Weld Counties who recieve electric service from PVREA. This program gives eligible residents the ability to save money on their energy bills by implementing weatherization measures at no cost to them.
Weatherization is a blanket term for a variety of measures that improve the energy efficiency of your home.
These cost-effective improvements and upgrades may include:
• Energy Audit
• Insulation in Attics and Walls
• Furnace Repair or Replacement
• Furnace Safety Testing
• Refrigerator Replacement
• Sealing Air Leaks
• Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs
• Storm Windows and Doors
According to a recent U.S. Department of Energy study, weatherization measures saved an average of 32% on a typical American home’s energy bill. And many of the steps you can take to get those savings are inexpensive and easy to do. But, even so, it is often hard to find the money to get the job done.
If you currently receive financial assistance from any of the following programs, you automatically qualify for weatherization services:
• Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
• Aid to the Needy and Disabled (AND)
• Old Age Pension (OAP)
• Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
• Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP)
Households can also be eligible if they meet required income guidelines.
You can use the chart below to see if you qualify.
Number of Household Members / Gross Annual Household Income
2 ...................... 30,260
3 ...................... 38,180
4 ...................... 46,100
(add $7920 for each additional member)
If the landlord agrees, renters in single-family, multi-family and mobile home residences can qualify for the free CEO Weatherization Program.
Your local agency will provide an application and assist you with completing it.
