In Partnership with Energy Outreach Colorado, EcoAction Partners will be running the San Miguel Power Association's IQ Weatherization Program to help families with lower incomes improve their home efficiency. Participants can receive up to $3,000 in home energy improvements.
Once accepted into the program, EcoAction Partners sends out an energy advisor to the recipients home to evaluate the home's efficiency. EcoAction Partners will work with local contractors to get the measures (hot water heater blankets, pipe insulations, LED installations, etc) at no cost to the homeowner. Once the homes are made more efficient, the homeowner will be eligible to be enrolled in the IQ Solar Program.
In partnership with the Clean Energy Collective and Grid Colorado, SMPA's IQ Solar Program will add another solar array to the grid (location still to be determined) and is scheduled to be completed in November 2016. The new panels installed on this array will be reserved for low income households that have completed the IQ Weatherization Program. It's estimated that participants of the program will receive a total of $325,276 over a lifetime and will save an estimated 8,665,439 lbs. of CO2.
These programs are designed to help those who need it most. To see if your household qualifies and to read more info visit the programs link our website by clicking here: SMPA IQ WEATHERIZATION PROGRAM
