Residential Programs

Nearly 40 years of experience designing and implementing residential energy programs, we’ve helped thousands of homeowners reduce their energy use while making their homes more comfortable. We employ behavioral research and a "one-stop" approach to help overcome traditional barriers to better energy use.

CEE works with utilities around the state to implement innovative, cost-effective residential energy efficiency programs. We’re here to help you achieve your home energy needs and goals.


Home Energy Squad 

Our home visits help families save energy and money. The program is available to homeowners who are either a CenterPoint Energy natural gas customer and an Xcel Energy electric customer, or who receive both natural gas and electric services from Xcel Energy.

Energy Advisor Service

Our energy advisor service connects you to the right resources and quality contractors to resolve home energy concerns and achieve your home energy goals. The best part is that working with an energy advisor is completely free.
 ​Energy Fit Homes
This certification is designed for existing residential properties to recognize homes that meet energy efficiency standards. Getting the Energy Fit Homes certification provides peace of mind that you are doing the right thing for yourself, your family, and your environment.
Residential Financing Programs
CEE offers low-interest secured and unsecured financing for virtually any home improvement project including energy efficiency specific projects and solar. We also support metro-area cities who provide loan, grant, and down payment assistance programs for their residents.

In addition to delivering high-quality programs, we also have experience working with communities and businesses to design and develop programs tailored to each client's strategies to achieve specific goals. Contact Carl Nelson to talk about CEE's program design offerings.
