The Building Blocks of Energy Efficiency
WEC has a four-step plan to help you change the way your home uses energy. One of our professional energy auditors will come to your house, free of charge, to perform an inspection. After that inspection, the auditor will present you with a plan for improving the efficiency of your home. If you need help to pay for those changes, WEC has a program in place to finance the project, and we even have a vetted list of contractors who can perform the upgrades.
