Home Energy Squad® is here to help you save money on your utility bills. The program features an energy visit right to your house. We help you understand your home's energy use and save money on your utility bills.

NEW: Virtual home energy visits, a cost-free service.

Home Energy Squad is now offering virtual home energy visits to help you find your biggest energy savings. The cost-free visit is conducted online to help you discover low cost energy-saving opportunities. We’ll also help identify possible future projects to save you even more, so you’ll be ready for action when the time comes.

Our virtual HES visit is complementary to a future in-person visit — you can do both! After the consultation, we may find that you could benefit from some free, energy-saving products that we can install during a home visit when possible. Meanwhile our virtual visit gets you started on energy savings that increase over time.
