WeCare (Weatherization, Conservation Advice and Recycling Energy), is designed to create savings through weatherization and energy education to help income-eligible customers in need. The WeCare Program helps provide a more efficient, safe and comfortable home. More importantly, it teaches our customers how to be more efficient – whether it’s through your own energy conservation efforts, or through the installation of energy-saving devices.

In many cases, homes may not be properly maintained or weatherized as well as they could be; therefore, it takes more energy to heat or cool the home. To pinpoint areas that could use improvement, many WeCare participants receive a walk-through inspection and energy education. Customers receive a furnace and water heater system inspection and some may also receive air sealing and attic insulation. Because it's often difficult to make the necessary repairs to save energy, we work with Community Action Agencies to identify customers who are heavy users of energy and help them find ways to reduce their energy consumption.
