Income Qualified

Income Qualified Services helps qualified residents improve the energy performance of their homes, manage their electricity use, and reduce electric bills by providing no-cost energy efficiency solutions.

What are the no-cost options available to me?

Option 1: FREE product kit of energy-saving items, delivered to your home with instructions for installation

  • Product kits may include energy-saving items, such as LED light bulbs, LED night lights, and a smart power strip. Additionally, some kits contain water-saving fixtures.

Option 2: FREE in-home consultation and product kit, with direct installation of energy-saving products by a qualified energy professional

  • An in-home consultation by a trained professional can help identify areas where additional energy savings are possible. During the consultation, the representative will bring and install the energy-efficient products in the free product kit, and will offer tips for saving energy. Based on the in-home consultation, some customers may be qualified for assistance to upgrade larger, inefficient appliances, such as refrigerators.

These free opportunities will help you save money and reduce electricity use.

How do I know if I qualify?

Income Qualified Services are offered in cooperation with the United States Department of Energy's (U.S. DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) through local Community Action Agencies. Families that have received weatherization services through WAP are automatically eligible for services through the Energy Optimization program and will not need to complete any additional paperwork. Eligible households must meet the current family income guidelines (see chart below).
