The City of Flagstaff will receive $587,100 from the Department of Energy's Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant, as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. These funds will assist the Flagstaff Residential Energy Efficiency Program in completing 550 residential energy efficiency retrofits, create and retain 8 - 12 jobs in the Flagstaff community, save 5 million kilowatts of energy annually, offset 5,446,875 pounds of carbon dioxide annually and save $195,000 in utility bills annually.
The Flagstaff Residential Energy Efficiency Program includes two progressive and impactful tiers of building energy conservation retrofits implemented through community partnerships.
First tier services include the installation of low cost, high efficiency energy and water conservation measures coupled with community education and outreach performed by trained and certified Energy Conservation Corps crews.
Second tier services include the implementation of all first tier measures as well as mitigation of more advanced needs identified through the performance of energy audits. Implementation, community education and outreach will be performed jointly by trained and certified Energy Conservation Corps crews and building science professionals.
Starting November 14th, applications will be available, on a first come first served basis. Fee for service is based on household income. Paper applications are available at the following locations: City Hall, Flagstaff Public Libraries, Southside Community Association, Plaza Vieja Neighborhood Association and Sunnyside Neighborhood Association.
