Home Energy Squad Enhanced

Would you like to save money on your utility bills?


Bloomington HRA has partnered with the Center for Energy and Environment, CenterPoint Energy, and Xcel to bring their Home Energy Squad Enhanced visits to homeowners in the City. The program encourages homeowners to make sustainable energy improvements to their homes and connects them to affordable financing options through the HRA and CEE. 

Home Energy Squad offers home energy visits—but what does that mean? During a visit, energy experts help you explore the place you live from a new perspective. They can show you how your home uses energy, as well as recommend ways to decrease your use—which will in turn decrease your utility bill. Their recommendations can help you improve everything from the energy performance of large equipment like furnaces, to the smaller, easier-to-overlook energy users like lightbulbs.

While usually performed in person, Home Energy Squad is now offering a free virtual home energy audit. If you are working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, you may have noticed that asking your home to act as both office and living space can really increase how much energy you use along with your monthly utility bill. After your free virtual visit, you and your energy expert may decide that the best next step is an in-person visit, which can be performed safely with health and safety guidelines in mind. Free in-person visits are available to income-qualified households.

To sign up for a home energy visit, please visit the CEE website or call 651-328-6220.
