Step 1: Apply

Step 2:  Energy Audit

Once your application is processed, an energy advisor from the TVA EnergyRight® Program will call you to schedule an energy audit. That is how it is determined if your home qualifies for the program. Your home will be examined, looking at areas such as heating and cooling equipment, duct systems, insulation levels and lighting. If your home qualifies for upgrades, you will be contacted to discuss beginning work on your home.

Step 3:  Upgrades and Inspection

A contractor will be assigned to complete the work.  Once complete, an energy advisor from TVA EnergyRight® will inspect the work, ensure everything is done correctly, and answer any questions you might have about the upgrades.
