Energy Saving & Weatherization
Pro Action employees uphold the highest standards of professionalism and quality. The Energy Department currently has 5 BPI (Building Performance Institute) certified staff. Our staff also maintains up-to-date EPA Lead Renovator certification, mandatory Health & Safety, and Lead & Air Sealing trainings.
The Weatherization Assistance Program assists income-eligible families and individuals by reducing their heating/cooling costs and improving the safety of their homes through energy efficiency measures. Energy efficiency measures performed through the program may include: air sealing (weather-stripping, caulking); wall and ceiling insulation; heating system improvement or replacement; lighting efficiency improvements; hot water tank and pipe insulation; refrigerator replacements with highly efficient Energy Star rated units. Assistance is available for both single-family and multi-family buildings. Weatherization Program recipients experience significant household energy use reductions and resultant energy cost savings, with an average savings in excess of 20%.
EmPower NY (both Steuben & Yates county)
Similar to the Weatherization Program, EmPower NY assists households with energy efficiency measures. EmPower is different from the Weatherization Program because it specifically targets electric usage and is offered only to NYSEG customers who meet eligibility guidelines. In addition to helping with electric efficiency, EmPower provides education for continued electric efficiency. Participating households experience significant energy use reductions and resultant energy cost savings, with an average savings in excess of 20%.
