REEP in April

CCLEP's Residential Energy Efficiency Program (REEP) can take new customers through the end of April for best results.

REEP is a program designed to increase the energy efficiency of homes in Cook County by using home performance energy audits before and after improvement work. This program is open to all income levels.  Homeowners pay for the audits and improvements, but audit rebates will be available with completion of selected improvements within 18 months of the initial audit.

The energy audits use a blower door test with an infrared camera. The camera works best when the outside temperature is different than the inside temperature. Thus it works better in the spring and fall months of the year.

Contact for details!
