Targeted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR
Focus on Energy administers a program to give qualifying Wisconsin residents assistance with evaluating and implementing energy efficient projects. The program is called Targeted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR and is available to Wisconsin residents who meet certain income requirements based on 60% to 80% of the State Median Income. For example, a household of one person needs to have annual income between $23,435 and $31,246 to qualify. A household of four people needs to have annual income between $45,067 and $60,089.
Those who qualify can receive a free home energy evaluation. Depending upon the results of the evaluation, the homeowner may receive insulation, heating and cooling updates, energy saving devices (CFLs, water-saving showerheads, etc.), and/or ENERGY STAR qualified appliances. Homeowners might also have their air leaks sealed as well.
For complete information on the program, including income requirements and an application, visit the Targeted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR webpage at FocusOnEnergy.com.
