EnergyFit Nevada Participating in the DOE Home Energy Score Pilot Program!

HES_sampleEnergyFit Nevada is excited to work with the Department of Energy and EnergySavvy on a new pilot program designed to determine the effectiveness of the Home Energy Score home energy rating system.

The Home Energy Score assigns homes a 1-10 score based on energy efficiency, and is lauded as an easily understandable and effective way to measure energy efficiency improvements and take some of the mystery out of the results.

The program is looking to determine the effectiveness of the Home Energy Score in driving home energy retrofits using EnergySavvy’s unique, cloud-based Optix software.

Denee Evans, EnergyFit Nevada’s Executive Director, explained the importance of this type of program in transitioning from an ARRA-funded program to a self-sustaining statewide program:

“As we embark on our next phase of growth, EnergySavvy will allow us to do more retrofit work with less administrative overhead, reduce the time and effort required by contractors to work with the program and engage Nevada homeowners more intelligently. As a DOE Home Energy Score study participant, we’ll be learning and incorporating the latest best practices in customer engagement.”

So far, more than 8,500 Home Energy Scores have been assigned across the country with the help of thirty partners. EnergyFit Nevada is excited to have the opportunity to participate in this cutting-edge project while helping homeowners across Nevada enjoy more comfortable, more energy efficient homes.
