Home Energy Efficiency Programs

We offer home energy efficiency and safety services at no cost to income-eligible residents to help keep them warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, all while lowering energy bills. These programs are available all year to Franklin County residents.

Apply today by calling (614) 621-1171. Visit https://coh.energysavvy.com/ to conduct an Online Home Energy Checkup and begin your application online.

These programs are provided at no-cost to income-eligible clients thanks to funding from Columbia Gas of Ohio’s WarmChoice program, Ohio Development Services Agency’s Home Weatherization Assistance Program and Electric Partnership Program, and AEP Ohio’s Community Assistance Program.

Eligibility

To be eligible, customers must rent or own a home in Franklin County and have a total household income during the preceding 12 months equal to or less than 150-200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines.  Percentage of Income Payment Plan (PIPP) Plus and Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) recipients are encouraged to apply

Services

Our experienced professionals perform home energy inspections and safety checks, and work to improve the safety and comfort of the home. Based on eligibility, customers may receive the following services at no cost:

  • Repair or replacement of furnaces and water heaters
  • Attic and sidewall insulation
  • Air sealing
  • Replacement of refrigerators, freezers, and light bulbs with more efficient models

Savings from energy efficient improvements translate to income that can be used for other important needs including food, health care, or transportation. For nearly 30 years, MORPC has served nearly 20,000 households to make their homes safer, more energy efficient, and comfortable.
