If you haven’t yet enrolled in ReEnergize Garfield County, hurry up and get your application in!
More than 90 households have been approved for the program so far, qualifying for $3,000 or more in financial aid toward recommended home energy measures.
The strong response shows county residents are feeling the pinch of high energy prices and are keen to make upgrades to lower their utility bills.
Garfield County Commissioner Tom Jankovsky said he’s pleased with how the program has taken off. “It just shows how much it’s needed,” he said. “Energy prices are sky-high. ReEnergize is a smart, targeted program that helps people save money by saving energy.”
But the $150,000 that Garfield County has allocated to ReEnergize is running out, so act now!
You’re eligible for ReEnergize if you earn no more than 120 percent of the area median income, which for a family of four in Garfield County equates to $105,960. (See our website for more info about income qualifications.)
If you earn less than 80 percent of the median income, you may be eligible for other federal or state programs that aren't subject to the same funding restrictions as ReEnergize. Regardless, start by applying to ReEnergize and we’ll make sure you’re placed in the program that’s right for you.
Depending on your income, you’ll receive all or a portion of the cost of recommended energy measures. These can include insulation, air sealing, window replacement, a heating/cooling system upgrade and LED lighting.
It really is a sweet deal: you'll save money on home improvements, and then you'll save money on utility bills every month. You're literally getting paid to do the right thing!
