Come to the Green Side

If you are a Hoffman Estates village resident living in a single-family, owner occupied home that was built before 1990, you are eligible for an energy audit at a reduced fee. 

Through a grant from the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, eligble residents may now schedule an audit by calling the village at 847-781-2631. 

The audit costs $100 and a $50 rebate is given to those homeowners who implement at least one of the recommended improvements.  A free re-inspection must be conducted after improvements are completed to receive the rebate. 

It will also be necessary for homeowners to supply the previous year’s utility bills so that inspectors have a baseline for the home’s energy usage.

Because audits through private companies can cost up to $600, this reasonable solution is a wonderful compromise for Hoffman Estates residents!
