Energy efficiency can help lower household energy use and ease energy burdens, particularly for income-qualified families. Many utilities in Virginia now offer energy efficiency programs that help address energy affordability through building upgrades at no cost to the customer. These programs offer multiple benefits to the customer such as improved home health, comfort, and safety while helping them save on their energy bills. Utility energy efficiency programs also deliver benefits to the community through clean energy, job creation, and economic investment.

Community Housing Partners (CHP) has over 40 years of experience serving low-income and vulnerable populations with energy efficiency services as a provider for the federally-funded Weatherization Assistance Program. We apply the principles of building science and installation techniques of weatherization using trained, licensed, and certified building performance and energy efficiency professionals. Since 2010, our utility partners have trusted us with their customers to deliver services reducing utility bills while improving comfort and health without compromising the structure or building systems.
