The Energy Resource Center is a non-profit organization that helps income-qualified families maintain a safe and healthy quality of life by making critical energy efficiency improvements to their homes. These energy improvements help families save money they can put towards medicine, food, and other vital living expenses.

Testimonials

They showed me what was wrong with the old furnace. There was a good chance it would leak carbon monoxide, and we wouldn’t even know it. I figure I would have spent around $7,500 I can use for other things. I have three kids here that I raise by myself, and they cost a lot.

I’ve lived here so long, everything in it was old. In cold months I had to just shut off the back room because the air was seeping out the door. Every organization I called said they couldn’t do anything for me. But ERC came. I’d still be cold in the house otherwise.
