Win a FREE Home Energy Assessment: Enter the Earth Day Energy Challenge

With spring in full bloom, we know many Virginians are prepping their homes for the warmer days of summer. To kick off the spring season and help you stay comfortable in the summer heat, the Richmond Region Energy Alliance (RREA) and Virginia Energy Sense have launched the Earth Day Energy Challenge to help Richmond-area residents make their homes more energy efficient.

To enter the challenge, homeowners will conduct a free and easy online energy assessment that will instantly recommend ways to make your home more energy efficient. Homeowners can also sign up by visiting the RREA booth at the Richmond Earth Day Festival on Saturday, April 21. The contest runs from April 2 through Earth Day on April 22. To enter the challenge, participants must be 18 years of age or older, own a home, and live in the city of Richmond, Town of Ashland, or the counties of Hanover, Henrico, Chesterfield, New Kent, Powhatan, Goochland or Charles City.

Participants will automatically be entered into a drawing to win one of five free in-home professional energy assessments donated by RREA’s pre-qualified contractors.

Professional home energy assessments, which can cost between $300 and $400, will help identify potential energy wasters, especially those in tough to spot or difficult to access areas like crawl spaces, and heating and cooling ducts. The home energy assessment allows the homeowner to prioritize the most cost-effective energy improvements to lower energy bills and live in a more comfortable home.
