Energy Efficiency

Home owners in Chisago County's Xcel Energy service area may take advantage of special pricing for a home energy efficiency assessment.

The assessment is provided through a partnership with the Home Energy Squad and includes an evaluation of your home’s energy savings opportunities. The squad will perform a whole house air leakage test and an infrared camera inspection to pinpoint areas that need sealing or insulation. Also included in the service are installations of energy saving measures and devices, including;

  • Door weather stripping,
  • Programable thermostat,
  • Water heater blanket,
  • CFL energy efficient lighting,
  • High-efficiency shower head, and
  • Faucet aerator.

Reduced pricing on LED lighting upgrades are available through the Home Energy Squad. There is no obligation to install recommended clean energy measures.

At this time, residents outside of Xcel's service area are unable to take advantage of reduced pricing for Home Energy Squad’s services. Residents serviced by North Branch Power and Light or East Central Energy should contact the local utility provider to increase energy efficiency incentives.

After signing up with the Hub for a residential energy efficiency assessment; we will contact you, walk through the process, and answer questions you may have. From there, the Home Energy Squad will contact you to schedule a convenient time for your assessment.

Please be prepared to sign a release authorizing Xcel Energy to provide 12 months of past utility bills to assist the Home Energy Squad. The review of your past energy bills will help to evaluate the value and benefits of energy efficiency improvements.

Special Pricing for Early Sign Ups

For a limited time, Chisago County home owners may take advantage of reduced cost energy assessments. Through donations of generous Chisago Lakes community members, the $120 assessment is lowered to just $70. This incentive will be applied to the first 50 residential energy efficiency assessment sign ups.
