VU neighborhood aiming for 5 percent energy reduction
Posted in NEWS on Monday, November 2nd, 2009
Go Green, District 18 is an initiative to reduce District 18’s energy consumption by 5 percent. Because Vanderbilt is located in District 18 and many faculty and staff members live there, the university is encouraging people to participate.
Homeowners and businesses in District 18 are encouraged to sign up for an NES In-Home Energy Evaluation to help decrease their power usage. Call 1-866-441-1430 to arrange for an in-home evaluation by a TVA-certified evaluator.
Participants pay an up-front fee of $150 for the evaluation. If any recommended improvements are made over $150, the fee will be reimbursed. Plus, homeowners will be reimbursed 50 percent of the installation cost up to $500.
This initiative is supported by District 18 Councilwoman Kristine LaLonde, NES & TVA, the Urban Land Institute, and Village Real Estate Services.
