Lincoln residents are invited to learn about financial incentives for energy efficiency upgrades at a reEnergize consumer education event Thursday, January 31. The reEnergize program provides the incentives for those who live in single-family homes or duplexes. The session is from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Peoples Choice Credit Union, 2500 "N" Street.
Those attending will learn how to take advantage of the many benefits offered by the reEnergize initiative and hear from the program's community partners. Information will be available about special lending options available to reEnergize participants through the Peoples Choice Credit Union and the Lincoln Electric System Sustainable Energy Program. Information also will be presented on how to combine funding from both programs. Local contractors and energy evaluators will attend to share information on home upgrades.
Through the reEnergize "market rate" path, homeowners can receive a discounted professional energy evaluation, plus up to 50 percent off the cost of installing the recommended upgrades. Those with incomes less than 80 percent of Lincoln's median income may qualify for up to $3,000 in energy upgrades for just $100.
