With the Metropolitan Energy Center building program ending, we thought it would be a good time to look back at the success of Home Performance with Energy Star.
Since 2014, the HPwES has had more than 396,000 kWh in energy reduction. Thousands of homes have been served by certified auditors and contractors. With the coming of 2016, the program is not ending. However, the program will be changing and will consist of more low cost prescriptive measures that reduces the first cost barrier for many participants.
Until there is more news about the upcoming changes, in the past year alone, there have been more than 6,500 energy efficiency improvements completed on Kansas City area homes through partnerships with area utilities resulting in an average of 12% energy savings or about 10 million kWh of electricity and 1 million ccf of gas.
MEC has supported several companies who “met the minimum requirements to perform Home Performance with Energy Star assessments. A listing of these companies is below.
We thank each and every one who had a hand in making this program such a success. We could not have done it without you.
