High Energy Homes
High Energy Homes Program
Frustrated by high utility bills and want to know where your money is going? Agreeing with T. Boone Pickens, who wants to reduce our dependence on foreign oil? Eager to reduce your environmental footprint, preferably without spending lots of money or wearing sweaters inside all winter?
If and of these are true, this program is for you.
Over a one year period begun in April 2011, the web-based High Energy Homes program helped 55 Los Altos Hills homeowners save an average of $740 per year on their energy bills, with little or no expense.
The program uses the new smart meters installed by PG&E to provide you with an accurate Home Energy Profile for your home (see sample here), together with simple suggestions to reduce any energy "leaks" discovered in the process. No home visit is required; it's all done over the web in just a few minutes.
This innovative program was developed locally and is based on early research by our own Environmental Initiatives Committee. The original program was funded through a grant by the California Energy Commission. Based on the program's success and positive feedback from participants, on June 21 our Town Council approved a one year extension. This extension lets 50 additional Los Altos Hills households participate on a first-come first-served basis.
