Homeowners in West Dundee are eligible for a program, funded through a US Dept of Energy grant, that helps pay for property upgrades to cut heating and cooling costs by improving energy efficiency.
Property owners pay $99 for an energy assessment by certified contractors to identify energy saving upgrades. Energy Impact Illinois will then pay a portion of the cost for the upgrades – as much as $1,750. Homeowners can save, on average, $500 per year on their energy bills after making energy efficiency upgrades to their home through this program.
For more information, call Megan Butler at 630-750-7726 or email email@example.com
