EmPower+ helps low- and moderate-income households save energy and money toward energy improvements made to their property.

Through EmPower+:

  • No-cost direct install improvements identified during the assessment can be installed by participating program contractors.
  • Households can receive financial discounts on the cost of energy efficiency improvements.

The program is open to income-eligible owners and renters of 1-4 family households.
