RePower Kitsap provides new opportunity for residents to save money and increase comfort

(Port Orchard, WA)  The RePower Program is back, ready to serve all of Kitsap County. RePower helps Kitsap County homeowners:

  • Save money through energy-efficient home improvements.
  • Increase the comfort, health and safety of their homes.
  • Boost the economy by supporting jobs through a robust, local network of trained contractors who perform energy efficiency upgrades chosen by homeowners.

The RePower Program makes it easy to save energy by offering in-home energy assessments and 100 percent financing at low interest rates.

Building on three years of excellence provided by RePower Kitsap, RePower Bremerton and RePower Bainbridge Island, RePower has improved over 1,500 homes in Kitsap County since 2011 and saved homeowners an average of $500 per home per year.

In 2014, new features of the RePower Program include:

  • Customer service and technical support for Kitsap County homeowners.
  • Training and lead generation for the RePower contractor network.
  • Collaboration with real estate professionals, appraisers and home inspectors to ensure that energy efficiency upgrades are considered when determining home value at time of sale.
  • Unbiased energy efficiency information, including quality assurance of work completed.

Kitsap County administers the RePower Program with funding from the State of Washington and in collaboration with the Washington State University (WSU) Energy Program. The WSU Energy Program provides technical training and support for RePower customers and participating contractors.
