How much has HomeWorks Energy helped homeowners save? Q1 2018 Report
Our goal at HomeWorks Energy is to help homeowners save on utility costs, reduce energy usage in their communities, and increase environmental sustainability.
Individual action adds up! Through our partnerships with state-utility sponsored programs like Mass Save® and NYSERDA’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR®, we are happy to help Massachusetts and New York residents live more sustainably, one home at a time.
Here’s how we’re doing so far this year…
What does it cost for you to heat and cool your home for a full year? We offer energy efficient solutions that allow us to maximize savings and benefits for our customers. By investing in recommended projects such as insulation or upgrades like a new water heater, homeowners can cut utility costs by as much as 20%. Through energy efficiency improvements made during the first quarter of this year, our customers will generate a combined lifetime savings of $44 Million!
Did you know Massachusetts is #1 in energy efficiency for the last seven years? This is made possible through programs like Mass Save that allow us to offer amazing energy saving benefits to you and your home! By providing solutions like replacing conventional light bulbs with energy-efficient ENERGY STAR® LED’s and upgrading to programmable thermostats that allow you to set your homes heating-cooling system to run along with your schedule, homeowners are able to conserve energy while still living comfortably.
From January to the end of March, our work allowed our customers to conserve over 147,000,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity. The energy that our customers are able to save is enough to power 16,400 homes for an entire year!
SAVE THE PLANET
A big part of HomeWorks Energy’s mission is to help homeowners understand their homes energy consumption and reduce carbon emissions through education and efficiency improvements. Through community partnerships and initiatives, we assist local organizations and towns help homeowners do their part today to help the world of tomorrow. In addition to reducing CO2 emissions, we help homeowners conserve water as well by replacing showerheads and aerators with low-flow options.
In the first quarter, HomeWorks Energy has helped homeowners save over 159,500 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually. That’s the equivalent of taking 34,000 passenger cars off the road for a whole year!
OUR 2018 ENVIRONMENTAL GOAL
For 2018, HomeWorks Energy set a goal to help homeowners in Massachusetts cut 500,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions through energy efficient solutions. So far this year, we have cut just over 320,700 metric tons of CO2 emissions, that’s 64% of our goal! This would not be possible without all the homeowners who took steps towards improving the comfort and efficiency of their homes this year
