What is Energy Coaching?

Energy Coaching will help you navigate energy efficiency improvements, home electrification, or renewable energy addition to a home, farm, or business. Energy coaching is “free and informed advice” from a knowledgeable energy professional based on your building’s unique mix of age, efficiency, and energy use.

We’ll start by understanding your goals and concerns, tour your home, talk through the challenges and opportunities, and conclude by providing you with a roadmap of next steps. Energy coaching will empower you to move forward with your clean energy project!

Examples of how we can help:

  • Home comfort concerns, such as air sealing, insulation and building controls
  • Financial incentives for clean energy and energy efficiency projects
  • Plan for whole-home electrification projects, including heat pumps, EVs, and electric appliances (Read about why electrification is important)
  • Resiliency plans that utilize fossil-based and battery-based generators
  • Strategies for appliance and building system replacements
  • Basics of solar and renewable energy, and how solar fits within wider electrification goals
