Dominion Energy’s Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Program (NEEP) will offer approximately 2,000 eligible Saluda customers free energy-efficiency assessments and improvements, as well as other energy-saving products and services. Residents began receiving information on how to participate in January, and installations began in homes in early February. NEEP provides income-qualified customers with these services in communities throughout the company’s service territory.
Administered by Honeywell International, all authorized contractors can be identified by their Dominion Energy badges. Technicians will observe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-approved safety precautions at all times, and they will wear additional personal protective equipment for their safety and customer safety. The program is scheduled to be in Saluda through April.
Energy-saving products available to eligible residential electric customers through the program include the following:
- LED light bulbs
- Faucet aerators
- Low-flow shower heads
- Electric water heater wraps and insulation for water pipes
- Weatherstripping for doors and windows
- Advanced power strips
- Adjustment of electric water heater temperature
- Heating, ventilation and air conditioning filter replacement
Dominion Energy started NEEP in 2013 to provide eligible residential electric customers with energy education and the direct installation of energy-saving improvements at no cost.
“Actively working with our customers in their communities and providing education empowers them to make informed decisions about how they use energy,” said Gerald Freeman, program manager of Dominion Energy South Carolina’s Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Program. “We’re excited to work with our Saluda area customers to help them save money and create a more energy-efficient community.”
Beyond NEEP, customers can take advantage of the energy-efficiency tips, rebates and incentives associated with all EnergyWise programs. During the past 10 years, Dominion Energy customers have reduced electricity usage by more than 925,000 megawatt hours – that’s enough energy to power 78,963 homes for a year.
Dominion Energy offers a comprehensive portfolio of EnergyWise programs that work together to increase overall energy efficiency and reduce energy usage. For more information about these programs, visit dominionenergysc.com/EnergyWise or call toll-free at 877-510-7234.
