Efficient homes for better lives.


The Energy Resource Center

No one should ever have to make the choice between turning up the heat and putting food on the table. 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.

Life doesn’t ask permission

When times get tough, our neighbors deserve an ally that eases their home energy struggles so they can stop worrying and get back to living.
