About the program
WeCare (Weatherization, Conservation Advice and Recycling Energy), is a voluntary program designed to create savings through weatherization and energy education to help income-eligible customers in need. The WeCare Program helps provide a more efficient, safe and comfortable home. More importantly, it teaches our customers how to be more efficient – whether it’s through your own energy conservation efforts, or through the installation of energy-saving devices.
How it works
In many cases, homes may not be properly maintained or weatherized as well as they could be; therefore, it takes more energy to heat or cool the home. To pinpoint areas that could use improvement, WeCare participants receive a walk-through analysis from our business partner which includes an inspection of the water heater and furnace certified energy analyst to ensure there are no safety issues. Customers are also educated on ways to reduce energy and receive energy-saving LEDs, aerators and shower heads. In some cases, they may also receive air sealing and attic insulation. Because it can be difficult to make some of the necessary repairs, we work with agencies within the community to identify customers who are heavy users of energy and help them find additional ways to reduce consumption.
