The EnergyWorks KC program offers residents, small businesses, churches, schools, and non-profit Kansas City organizations an opportunity to increase the efficiency of their homes and buildings. An energy analysis will result in a comprehensive assessment report detailing all the areas for improvement, costs to accomplish the improvements, and the return on investment. EnergyWorks KC staff will walk participants through the numerous rebates and other incentives available through other organizations, and provide financing to pay for the improvements. EnergyWorks KC's lending partner, Neighborhood Housing Services, has 0% and 3% loans with up to 15 years to repay.
This program is part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Better Buildings Program. The DOE has awarded over $500 million in federal funds to more than 40 states, local governments, and organizations to administer local programs targeting a variety of building types. Combined, these local programs are expected to improve the efficiency of more than 170,000 buildings through 2013 and save up to $65 million in energy costs annually.
