The Intercity Home Energy Squad® Challenge was formed in 2020 to challenge residents to learn how their home uses energy and identify energy-saving opportunities through a home energy visit from the Home Energy Squad. By learning more about their home’s energy use, residents can be better stewards of our resources and increase their home’s comfort with energy efficient improvements.

The Challenge tracks each city’s participation in Home Energy Squad visits as well as rebates earned. At the end of the year, the city with the highest participation and most rebates per capita wins. The Challenge has five categories:

  1. Highest HES participation per capita
  2. Highest HES participation per capita (income qualified visits)
  3. Most air sealing and insulation jobs completed per capita
  4. Most high efficiency mechanical (heating and cooling) rebates per capita
  5. Community Champions  

Check back throughout the year to see which cities are in the lead!
