cash rebate homeowners may also qualify for free loose fill attic insulation According to Glenn Leineweber Consumer Programs Coordinator for NBU the local utility and LCRAs incentive is the minimization of demand for electricity when demand is at its highest Minimizing peak demand helps to delay construction of additional costly power plants and efficient air conditioners and heat pumps reduce plant operating and fuel cost LCRA sponsors the program and NBU administers it for our service said Leineweber The ultimate goal is to reduce our electrical consumption in the area at the same time providing a benefit to the homeownen that decide to upgrade their systems to an energy efficient unit by passing the savings on to them in the form of a monetary rebate as well as putting in the insulation Ultimately theyll have a lower energy bill too The insulation plus the efficiency of the newer units result in a lower bill They could see anywhere from a 10 to a 20 percent reduction in their energy bill We can also go in and do an energy audit to identify other problems or opportunities they may doors or windows water heater blankets or more ventila tion in the Other utility companies in the area providing the incentives Include San Marcos Electrical Company Guadalupe Valley Electric Coopera tive Pedernales Electric CoOp and Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative CellUIniul Inc
