There are a number of programs run by utilities and/or private organizations that can help homeowners and businesses save energy. 

NVRC works with the Local Energy Alliance Program and Community Housing Partners to provide energy efficiency, weatherization and solar energy services. Some of the efficiency/weatherization programs can be at no cost based upon income and/or age.

These programs are as follows:

  1. Home Energy Efficiency - energy efficiency/weatherization services available in the region.
  2. Solar Energy Systems - our Solarize NoVA program helps reduce the cost of going solar by working with vetted, pre-qualified solar installation companies.
  3. Solar Map - the only map provided for the region which helps begin the conversation about solar by providing basic information about the solar capacity of your home/building. 

In addition to the above, a number of our local utility providers offer energy efficiency programs.
