Energy Coaching

What is “Energy Coaching”?

Each person on the Energy Co-op’s member services team is focused on helping homeowners use less fossil fuel and save money. We call this “Energy Coaching”. 

Whether it’s explaining our budget and price protection plans, helping you decide if it’s time for a new heating system, figuring out if your home is suitable for a heat pump or scheduling an energy audit, our staff is trained to coach you on the best ways to improve your home’s efficiency and comfort.

It all gets down to the fact that we are not-for-profit business that puts “people before profits”. That’s why our members can rely on our advice to be in their best interest. Our goal is to coach you on ways to “win” the energy savings game with smart, targeted and cost-effective improvements.

There’s never a fee for consultations or cost estimates. We’re here to help!

  • Efficiency Success Story

    We've been Co-op members since 2012. In 2005 after using 1,823 gallon of heating oil and five cords of wood for heat and hot water we set out on a long-term effort to bring our energy use under control.

  • Committed to Reducing Fossil Fuel Footprint

    My wife and I are committed to reducing our fossil energy footprint, and have been heating our home with wood, trying to use our old oil burner only as backup. Unfortunately, this leaves some cold corners in the house, including our kid's room.

  • On Time and On Budget

    Thank you so much for all of the wonderful work and guidance you gave us when it came to deciding what our best option for heat should be in our new (to us) house. Last winter, we survived on a wood stove and two older model kerosene heaters.
