New EPA Energy Star Home Advisor Resource Available to Homeowners This Winter

This past December, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched its Energy Star Home Advisor. The Energy Star Home Advisor is an online tool created to assist Americans in reducing utility costs and energy use by increasing the energy efficiency of their homes. The improved efficiency is facilitated through recommended home-improvement projects customized specifically to your home layout.

This new Energy Star Home Advisor walks homeowners through an energy assessment, which they perform on their own, to develop an Energy Star home profile. Based on the profile created, the tool then provides customized recommendations for improving efficiency.

Residential Electricity Prices are Rising across the United States

Residential electricity prices are rising across the United States. In some areas, like New England, rates may rise as much as 37% over last winter’s, solely because the price of buying electricity from power plants has increased dramatically to the highest level in decades, according to a National Grid spokesperson.

Another reason for these increases are because utility companies have been spending more on the transmission infrastructure necessary for delivering electricity to customers.

In light of these rising prices, several States have restructured the industry so that residential customers have the option of choosing an alternative retail electricity supplier for the generation (energy) component of their electricity bill.

This is the case in New York, and yes East Coast Power & Gas can help you lower your bills this holiday season.  Contact us at 800-545-9155 for a free consultation and quote.

The United States Department of Energy Announces a $9 Million Investment Aimed at Improving Energy Efficiency in Hotels, Hospitals, and Commercial Buildings

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced funding in the amount of $9 million dollars that will be aimed at improving energy efficiency in certain types of buildings. The funding is meant to encourage investments in certain energy saving technologies in shops, restaurants, hospitals, hotels and other types of commercial buildings according to the DOE website.

The statement on the DOE website indicates that this funding opportunity is intended to encourage building owners and occupants to demonstrate widely-applicable and self-sustaining approaches that address key challenges and make building efficiency improvements easier. Examples include:

  • Green leases that help building owners and lessees save money: Equitably align the costs and benefits of efficiency investments between building owners and tenants.
  • Better information for better decisions: Use Department-developed energy modeling software to better identify and predict a building’s energy performance. The goal is to show how energy efficiency can result in lower energy bills and reduce overhead.
  • Low-risk nature of financing energy efficiency projects:Assist lenders in obtaining better access to data and information resources that demonstrates the cost-effectiveness of investing in energy efficiency projects.
