League City offers energy-efficiency freebies
League City homeowners can apply to receive free energy efficiency improvements at their homes as part of a new federally funded program.
It is being administered by League City and BKR Consulting on first-come, first-serve basis, and there are limited funds, city spokeswoman Kristi Wyatt said. The city hired BKR Consulting to help distribute the approximately $100,000 left over from a $500,000 energy efficiency grant that the city received last year, she said.
The program is meant to maximize a homeowner's energy consumption by implementing cost savings measures in his or her home. It covers, but is not limited to CFL light bulbs, Energy Star ceiling fans, window units, refrigerators, solar screens, attic insulation, and solar powered attic fans.
To be eligible for the program, the applicant must be the homeowner and occupant of the residence. No rental properties are allowed.
Valid identification for everyone in the home is required along with verification of income for everyone 18 years or older in the home with a current IRS tax return 1040 or Social Security award letter. Applicants must also provide a copy of warranty deed for the home to show proof of ownership and an electric bill.
Once an applicant applies, BKR Consulting will visit his or her home to identify energy efficiency improvements that can be made, Wyatt said.
Applications for the program are available at the front desk of City Hall, 300 W. Walker. BKR Consulting will be at city's Johnnie Arolfo Civic Center, 400 W. Walker, from 2 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 18, to assist homeowners with the application process.
