Weatherization for Your Home
Each year, KPUB hosts community events with the Alamo Area Council of Government (AACOG) to help our community weatherize their homes through AACOG’s program funding for their Weatherization Assistance Program.
AACOG’s Weatherization Assistance Program is designed to help low-income people, particularly the elderly and handicapped, overcome the high cost of energy through the installation of energy conservation measures at no cost to the applicant.
Although the program does not address major home repairs, it can help lower the amount of energy used in a home by enhancing the structure’s thermal boundary. Like a styrofoam cup, the house will stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. The less energy it takes to heat or cool the house, the more money is saved.
Community Weatherization & Assistance Event
The Kerrville Public Utility Board (KPUB) and Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG) are teaming up to help you learn how to save energy and money—and possibly make improvements to your residence for free!
Join us for our KPUB Community Weatherization & Assistance Event on Thursday, November 9, 2023, at the Dietert Center (Grill Room), from 1:30-5:30 p.m.
Team members from KPUB and the Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG) will be in attendance to discuss:
- AACOG’s free funding for energy-saving home improvements *must income qualify and meet eligibility criteria
- Home energy-saving tips & energy audits through KPUB
- KPUB’s rebate offerings for energy-efficient home improvements
- KPUB’s community solar rate for low-to-moderate-income households
- Local agency assistance, including utility assistance, rental programs and emergency programs through CCSCT
KPUB will give away energy-efficient heat blanket kits equipped with home weather-stripping (supplies are limited) and sponsor a drawing for a FREE smart Nest thermostat.
AACOG’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) provides savings for the lifetime of your house by reducing energy bills and is 100% free for those that income qualify. The program can be available to both renters and homeowners.
Examples of some of the energy-saving weatherization upgrades may include attic, wall and/or floor insulation, installation of new gas water heaters, space heaters, HVAC, or window air conditioning units, replacement or repair of broken windows and weather-stripping and caulking for air leakage control.
