(September 24, 2020) — Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative and TVA are launching residential virtual home energy evaluations so residents can benefit from money-saving, expert energy advice while maintaining social distance during the pandemic.
Virtual home evaluations are an excellent way for homeowners to benefit from energy efficiency without COVID-19 concerns. MLEC members can use their smart device to interact with MLEC Energy Specialist Nathan Wagner through an app and augmented reality technology instead of a site visit. There is no charge for the service, and participants receive a $10 Home Depot card and six LED bulbs mailed to their home.
During the evaluation, the homeowner and MLEC will look at appliances, the thermostat and heat and air unit, check weather stripping on doors and windows, along with other energy users. At the conclusion, homeowners have access to energy-saving recommendations based on their individual home.
