Celebrating Sustainable Princeton's 100th EnergySmart Homes Home Energy Audit!

Last fall, Sustainable Princeton and Ciel Power introduced a new program where Princeton residents could undergo a home energy audit at a reduced rate of $49.  The audit, designed to pinpoint how Princeton homes are losing or wasting energy, provides Princeton homeowners with prescriptive measures to improve the overall energy efficiency of their homes.

Residents participating in the EnergySmart Homes campaign receive information about specific cash rebates and financing incentives available through the New Jersey Home Performance with Energy Star program to offset much of the cost associated with installing the recommended energy efficiency upgrades.

Launched at a press conference in October of 2013, the EnergySmart Homes campaign was conceived as a way to provide Princeton residents with affordable, high-quality home energy assessments. With representatives from Sustainable Princeton, local government, and the media in attendance, Sustainable Princeton kicked off the EnergySmart Homes campaign with the goal of performing one hundred home energy audits in Princeton.

"Thanks to the efforts of Sustainable Princeton, Princeton Mayor Liz Lempert, Princeton University, and the Princeton Library, we've been able to get great exposure for the EnergySmart Homes campaign." said Scott Fischer, Managing Member of Ciel Power.  "The whole community has been incredibly supportive and has welcomed the program with exposure in local newspapers, participation in local events, and panel discussions at the Princeton Library.  It's because of this incredible support that we've been able to achieve our goal of providing one hundred home energy audits ahead of schedule."

Audits are still available at the $49 rate through the EnergySmart Homes program.  To schedule a home energy audit, visit www.cielpower.com/princeton, or call Ciel Power at 201-632-3463.

To celebrate the 100th EnergySmart Homes Home Energy Audit, Ciel Power surprised the lucky Princeton homeowners, Carol and Carl Haag, with an energy efficient lighting upgrade!
