Keep Warm & Cut Your Costs: How$martKY

Because of historically cheap energy rates and lots of poorly insulated housing, Kentuckians’ average home electricity use is one of the highest in the nation – 24 percent more than the national average.  This WMMT report follows energy specialists on a home energy audit through How$martKY, a pilot program that lets homeowners and businesses make energy efficiency upgrades and pay for the improvements with their energy savings.  Kentucky State Rep. Mary Lou Marzian has recently introduced the Clean Energy Opportunity Act, House Bill 167.  If passed, many more Kentuckians could benefit from programs like How$martKY.
