MINNEAPOLIS – December 23, 2015 – CenterPoint Energy’s Conservation Improvement Program’s Nonprofit Affordable Housing rebate program recently surpassed the $1 million milestone in rebates to subsidize energy efficient equipment and projects for qualified low-income homeowners. Representatives from Greater Metropolitan Housing Corporation, Habitat for Humanity and Project for Pride in Living were recognized for participating in the program and achieving this significant outcome.
“We are proud of our strong, long-standing partnerships with these agencies and the rebate awards that are used to build energy efficient housing opportunities for those in need in Minnesota,” said Doug Peterson, senior director of the company’s Sales and Conservation Improvement Program. “The residents will be able to live more affordably and comfortably with substantial annual energy savings.”
CenterPoint Energy’s director of Energy Efficiency, Todd Berreman, said the company continues to increase its support for eligible 501 (c) 3 non-profit housing, which allows qualified homebuyers or renters to live in a more energy efficient residence with savings of more than $500 per year on space and water heating costs.
