Through the Larimer County Conservation Corps (LCCC) Water and Energy Program, Larimer County residents can receive a FREE Home Efficiency Assessment this winter. Assessment applications are now being accepted and the program will begin December 9, 2013.
 
The services and products of the Water and Energy Program are provided at no cost to you. This includes installing efficiency products such as compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), programmable thermostats, low-flow shower heads, and faucet aerators. Crew members will inspect your refrigerator, water heater, heating/cooling system, and home insulation. Corpsmembers will also offer education on efficiency practices to help you lower your water and energy use and utility bills.
 
Since 2008, the Conservation Corps’ Water and Energy Program has trained young adults in the efficiency industry and increased accessibility to conservation measures and education for Fort Collins and Loveland residents. This year’s goal is to assess and complete efficiency upgrades for 265-365 households in Loveland and 325-425 households in Fort Collins.
 
Residents eligible to receive this service must be Fort Collins Utilities or Loveland Water and Power customers.  If you are interested in receiving this free service you can complete an assessment application at http://larimerworkforce.org/lccc/energy-corps/ or contact the Corps by:
