Residential Energy Efficiency Program
Overview
  • The Northern Virginia Regional Commission is partnering with the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP) and local governments in the region to offer a new energy efficiency service to homeowners in Northern Virginia
  • The Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program offers homeowners certified home energy assessments, pre-qualified local contractors, and quality assurance for their energy efficiency needs
  • Homeowners can receive a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR certificate and enjoy 20% (or more) energy savings, as well as enjoy a more comfortable and healthier home
  • Homeowners may, depending on where they live, be eligible for incentives including rebates or special financing programs for the home energy improvements

How Does the Program Work?
  • Complete a free online survey to understand your home's energy savings potential, available at http://leap.energysavvy.com/ and send LEAP your enrollment agreement
  • LEAP will have a Building Performance Institute Certified Building Analyst from our network contact you about scheduling an energy assessment for your home
  • After you receive your home energy assessment, review your reports findings for cost effective energy improvements
    • A LEAP professional can review the assessment report with you if you like
  • If you are interested in financing options, we can let you know the lending partners available in your area
  • Select a LEAP Certified Responsible Contracting Company to install your home energy improvements
    • Be sure to tell your LEAP contractor you are in the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program.
  • Once the installations are complete, LEAP will review the work for quality assurance
  • Once the quality review shows you will meet at least 20% in energy savings, you will receive your Home ENERGY STAR Certificate
  • Enjoy your investment in a healthier and more comfortable home and watch the energy savings pay you dividends over the months ahead
