This spring, Helena residents will have the opportunity to participate in a conservation pilot project that will save them both money and energy. NorthWestern Energy has partnered with the City of Helena to provide energy audits and some energy conservation measures free of charge to participating households.
Through an application process, the City will choose 100 homes in two-block clusters from different neighborhoods around Helena. In these areas, NorthWestern Energy will first conduct an energy audit for each participating household and then deploy contractors to install energy-saving measures in Helena homes. All improvements and advice will be provided at no charge by NorthWestern Energy. The average value of improvements to individual homes will range from $1,000 to $2,000.
AERO is helping to recruit participants and Green Blocks coordinators. For more information and applications,
