In-Home Energy Evaluation

MTEMC, in partnership with TVA, offers the In-Home Energy Evaluation for members who are willing to pay $150. The cost of the evaluation is waived if the recommended energy improvements by a certified MTEMC evaluator are completed according to specific guidelines and requirements. 

In addition, a member may qualify to receive a reimbursement for half the cost of the installation up to a maximum of $500. The work must be completed within 90 days by an approved Quality Contractor Network member.
