Home Energy Improvements Hit Chicago’s Residential Radar

 

The City of Chicago has recently launched the residential phase of its Retrofit Chicago Program, which opens the possibility for substantial energy savings for the single family homes and multi-unit buildings that make up half of the city’s energy consumption. 

The process of home retrofitting can be a confusing one.  But the City’s program aims to make the process as easy and as affordable as possible.  Non-profits, energy companies, and city government programs have partnered to support the program, including our very own CNT Energy.
