WEATHERIZATION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (WAP)
Project GO, Inc. has helped over 40,000 residents conserve energy as a means to lower utility costs and ensure a safe living environment.
Weatherization Assistance Programs: Provide free weatherization services and products to improve a home’s energy efficiency and reduce overall utility costs, including attic insulation, weather-stripping, caulking, minor home repairs and related conservation measures (see below), as applicable within the program guidlines.
Proper weatherization of a home is vital to the success of energy conservation and the cost-saving goals of the Project Go program outline. Products and services provided are based upon the evaluation of cost effectiveness and essential needs.
Our weatherization services consist of a full assessment of all weatherization measures that Project GO, Inc. has to offer, including heating and cooling (HCS) services, and refrigerator replacement. The services consist of new clients (households or dwellings not previously weatherized under LIHEAP), recipients of emergency heating and cooling services under ECIP HCS, high energy burden households or households with high energy consumption, households with the lowest incomes, particularly those with household incomes below 75% of the federal poverty guidelines, and households with members of the vulnerable populations. All households can apply, but priority is given to households with higher energy burdens and/or those with vulnerable population numbers.
We have multiple programs across multiple counties, including Placer, Nevada, El Dorado and Sierra.
Once accepted into the program, a thorough assessment of the residence is conducted, including carbon monoxide testing. Conservation through weatherization products include:
• Attic and floor insulation
• Door weather stripping and Caulking
• Water conservation devices
• Water heater insulation
• Water heater repair or replacement
• Dual pane/storm window installation
