Community Energy Services Workshop Coming to Audubon on March 31! Block with the Most Participants Receives Eastside Food Coop Gift Certificates!

Audubon homeowners are invited to participate in the Community Energy Services (CES) program. CES begins with FREE educational workshops where homeowners can schedule a customized home energy visit.  The visit includes a blower door test which measures for air leaks in the home, as well as the installation of energy and money saving materials. These materials may include compact fluorescent light bulbs, low-flow showerheads, faucet aerators, pipe wrap, a programmable thermostat and more!  Participants are also provided with energy tracking and feedback, information on innovative financing and access to specialized rebates available to only program participants. The cost to homeowners is a co-pay of only $30. However, ANA will cover the cost of the co-pay for the first 200 participants. That means participants receive up to $400 in materials and services for FREE!

Your first step to participate in Community Energy Services is by attending an upcoming Workshop:

Thursday, March 31st at 6:30 p.m.

The McKnight Foundation has awarded CES $50,000 that will provide grants for the Minneapolis neighborhoods with the highest participation and implementation rates. Currently, Audubon Park has the 9th highest participation rate citywide. The winning neighborhoods will receive grants of $2,500 or more! To increase ANA’s chances of receiving a grant, residents are encouraged to tell their neighbors about CES. As an incentive, each participant on the block in Audubon Park with the highest participation rate will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Eastside Food Coop and a 10-pack of compact fluorescent light bulbs!

Community Energy Services is a partnership with the Audubon Neighborhood Association, Center for Energy and Environment, City of Minneapolis, CenterPoint Energy and Xcel Energy with funding provided by the MN Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund and the City of Minneapolis block grants.
