Step 1 – Sign Up.
Step 2 – Schedule Appointment.
After you sign up, eligible customers will be contacted to schedule an appointment with a representative of the WeCare team. Weekday and Saturday appointments are available. Someone at least 18 years or older must be present during the appointment.
Step 3 – Services Performed.
On the day of your appointment, a representative of the WeCare team will visit your home and talk with you about energy efficiency and your family’s energy usage, giving you valuable information and practical ways to reduce energy costs without sacrificing comfort. Our suggestions are based on what you share with us about how you heat and cool your home, how you use appliances and any comfort concerns you might have. Overall, this meeting helps us determine how much energy you could be saving every month on your utility bill.
