Energy Tips for Renters
If you’re a renter who exceeds the income limits for free products and appliances (listed at top of this page), talk to your landlord. See if they’re willing to contact us, and we can help determine if their property qualifies for free or discounted weatherization services and products. Energy efficiency upgrades often lower costs for both renters and landlords, so they can make good financial sense for everyone involved.
