Home Energy Analysis
Blue Grass Energy can assist you with your energy conservation needs, whether building a new home, or trying to conserve energy in an existing home. We have five certified HERS raters on staff that are highly skilled in “building science solutions”, and are ready to assist you. They have the tools, including infrared cameras to find where your energy dollars may be escaping. They inspect the likely suspects–your insulation, windows, ductwork, water heater, or any other place you think might be troublesome–and suggest changes that will make your home more comfortable and your energy bill lower. The best part is, energy audits are FREE to all Blue Grass Energy members!
The SimpleSaver program is another way that Touchstone Energy Cooperatives of Kentucky are working to keep your electricity affordable and our environment healthy. We will pay you up to $20 annually for each central air conditioner you enroll. Sign up your 40-gallon or greater electric water heater and receive an additional $10 annual credit. That may not sound like a lot of money, but consider that the program costs you nothing; no effort, no inconvenience and no discomfort. Why are we willing to pay you? Because limiting electric use at peak times during the summer and winter delays the construction of expensive new power plants and helps to keep our fuel costs down which helps keep your energy costs affordable. Managing peak load also decreases Kentucky’s carbon footprint and gives all of us more time to explore affordable sources of renewable energy.
With SimpleSaver, you benefit, your co-op benefits and the environment benefits. To sign up, just click here or call 1-800-305-5493.
