Energy Efficiency Canvass this Weekend

Got this emailed to me by a city worker today. I think there was supposed to be a booth set up that dealt with energy efficiency at the Spruce up for Spring event, that was eventually canceled. I think the energy audit normally cost $200 and with a $150 rebate, the total cost of just the audit was $50 - which sounds like a good deal. Not sure if this is the same thing or not, but either way could be worth it to find out.

Here's the information:

The Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance has an upcoming AmeriCorps Summer Outreach effort planned in the Fort Thomas area this Friday, July 22nd and Saturday, July 23rd. As a part of our partnership with a team from AmeriCorps' National Civilian Community Corps, we will be canvassing the area to spread awareness about the benefits of energy efficiency and the rebate program we offer to help homeowners.

The Energy Alliance is a regional non-profit organization that provides reduced-cost energy assessments, project management and financial incentives to residents of 1-2 family owner-occupied homes and building owners of Hamilton County in Ohio and Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties in Kentucky. Our Home Performance Program allows homeowners to easily and affordably make energy efficient upgrades to their home with cash incentives and low-interest loans.


  1. I see old Amanda has been stealing your stories again. This one and the ring scavenger hunt. Vultures! HA!

  2. Hey all, this is Sean Fisher with the Energy Alliance.

    Indeed, we were set to join you at the Spruce up for Spring event, so we are looking forward to speaking with Ft. Thomas residents this time out.

    Our contractors typically charge $400-$500 for these energy audits, however they lower their rates to be a part of our program, and we provide an additional $150 toward the energy audit. This means that for most homeowners, the audit will be $50 (for all houses under 3000 sq. ft.).

    Once you receive the audit, you are eligible for our program that pays for up to 35% of your energy improvements.

    We will be in Ft. Thomas again today, feel free to ask our canvassers any questions.

  3. Did anyone talk with any canvassers? Don't think they came by my house on Ft. Thomas Ave. I'd have liked to talk with them.

  4. Mark, if you would like to learn more about our program, feel free to give us a call - 513-621-4232.
