Hopkinsville Electric System is teaming up with TVA to promote smarter energy use across the Valley. One of the best ways to start down the road to greater energy efficiency, and lower electric bills, is to conduct an energy efficiency audit on your home. This audit starts with an assessment of the factors inside and around your home that affect how you use electricity. This information is then assessed to identify areas of improvement that will result in a lowered usage of electricity, resulting in lower electric bills.
To obtain an energy efficiency assessment of your home, there are three options:
