Services Provided by The Energy Resource Center

Energy Resource Center services are aimed at keeping people safe and warm while reducing energy bills.  ERC seeks to provide weatherization services for income-qualified individuals as well as those that are able to pay and want their dollars to provide services for those in need.

The program provides energy and water efficiency improvements and cost savings on monthly utilities bill.
