Low-Income Weatherization Helps Save Money

Low-Income Weatherization Makes Lakewood Homes Energy Efficient, Saves Money WA State Matchmaker Program Partners Lakeview Light & Power with Pierce County Community Connections Low-income households can save on their energy bills and have more energy efficient homes thanks to a program funded by the State of Washington and Lakeview Light & Power. It’s part of the Washington State Matchmaker Program, administered by the Washington State Department of Commerce, to permanently reduce energy bills and energy loss in electrically heated homes in Lakeview Light & Power’s service territory.

Lakeview Light & Power provides a cash sponsorship, which is matched dollar for dollar by the WA State Matchmakers program, to Pierce County Human Services. Pierce County Human Services then qualifies low-income Lakeview customers, conducts a comprehensive energy audit on the home, and installs energy saving measures.

A typical home may receive improvements like a Ductless Heat Pump heating system, air seal of cracks and holes, and add wall, floor, ceiling, or attic insulation. Through Lakeview’s participation in the Matchmaker program, Lakeview customers can receive additional improvements beyond what Lakeview’s energy conservation program could do by itself.

Teri Allen, Weatherization Program Specialist for Pierce County Human Services says, “The investment Lakeview Light & Power is helping us expand our service and get more homes weatherized. It’s a partnership we really appreciate.”

For more information about the Matchmaker Program, or to find out if your home may qualify for assistance, call Donn Falconer, (253) 798-4400 (option #3) at Pierce County Human Services.
