UES works with community partners to provide free energy efficiency upgrades to the homes of income-qualifying customers. If you qualify for available assistance, these improvements could significantly reduce your monthly utility bills.
UniSource Energy Services (UES) provides funding to the Western Arizona Council of Governments (WACOG), the Northern Arizona Council of Governments (NACOG), and to the Southeastern Arizona Community Action Program (SEACAP), for the purposes of providing energy affordability to UES' low-income residential electric and gas customers. Coconino County Community Services also receives support for gas appliance replacements and repair.
Through this weatherization program, energy efficiency measures and improvements are available to a broader base of low-income residential customers. The program complements the Federal Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), and Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) programs.
* It is anticipated that replacement or conversion will include the installation of the most energy efficient equipment available. In all cases the energy efficiency rating of equipment should be above the current federal minimum standards.
