SCE&G Offering a Free Energy Audit
SCE&G Offers an In Home Energy Inspection
Lets face it.... Green Homes are now leading the way to an environmental revolution by using green products in new home construction. Similar to the gas-guzzlers that were so popular in the mid-20th century being junked for sleek higher MPG cars and hybrids, a green revolution is now taking over the way homes are built. It's so evident that even the local power company, SCE&G, is offering FREE energy audits to help train customers to conserve energy. There's also the SCE&G's "Value Visit" which gives homeowners an opportunity to decide how to improve their homes envelope by sending a representative from the utility company to your home to evaluate what changes will benefit you most. Both of these programs will give you some education and advice on what you need to do to conserve energy and lower your monthly bill. The "Value Visit" costs $25 but will be refunded once you make the improvements, if within 90 days. And the "In Home Inspection" is free, free, free! All of the details are on the SCE&G website including an application.
