Solar Water Heaters

The Solar Water Heater Program provides for the installation of solar water heating systems in low income households.  One of the most cost-effective ways to include renewable technologies into a building is by incorporating solar hot water.  It minimizes the expense of electricity, which in some cases can account for 20% of a household's income, for low-income residences, this can be a substantial impact.

Weatherization

The program is designed to reduce energy consumption in the home.  By reducing the energy bills of low-income families as opposed to offering aid, weatherization reduces dependency and liberates these funds for spending on more pressing family issues. Specific energy conservation measures  include: installing or adding attic insulation; repairing or replacing deteriorated exterior doors and windows; installing thresholds and weather-stripping; installing low flow showerheads and pipe insulation on water heater lines; installing water heater jackets; repairing a/c ducts; replacing a/c filters; installing energy efficient light bulbs; and replacing inefficient air conditioners, refrigerators and water heaters.
