Saving with eScore

Members of Warren RECC can increase the comfort in their home and save money through eScore, a residential energy-efficiency program for existing homes. Partnering with TVA, Warren’s eScore program offers qualifying homeowners rebates for a variety of energy-saving home improvements, including new duct systems, heat pumps, windows, storm windows, as well as air sealing and tune-ups for central air-conditioning units.

Ramsey, Warren RECC CEO. “Homeowners can work at their own pace to complete energy improvements to achieve the maximum efficiency eScore of 10. Over time, the cost of energy improvements will be recovered through energy savings.”

Four other Kentucky cooperatives—Pennyrile Electric, Hickman-Fulton Counties RECC, West Kentucky RECC, and Tri-County Electric—also offer eScore. Call your local co-op for more details.
