"Nearly every Oswego resident is eligible for a free energy assessment, letting them know where they are losing energy and money, and what they can do to fix it" said outreach associate David Alicea.
In addition to the free assessment, residents may be eligible for a 50 percent grant and a low-interest loan to finance any home efficiency work.
PPEF plans on working with the Community Development Office and the city council members to help residents know about the program.
Several council members offered their support for the program, taking information to hand out to residents and applications for their own homes.
PPEF is a statewide non-profit with a local chapter based in Syracuse New York. Under contract with New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, PPEF is responsible for raising awareness about home efficiency incentives and assisting homeowners through the process. PPEF is currently working in Central New York, including Cayuga, Cortland, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, and Oswego County.
