27 Oct Connect with MORPC to see if you are eligible for free weatherization programs
Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) offers Franklin County residents residential energy programs that will keep their homes warmer in the winter, reduce energy consumption, and save them money.
MORPC’s experienced energy efficiency professionals perform energy inspections and safety checks of homes year-round.
These services are free to income-eligible clients, who on average see a 28-percent reduction in energy bills each year. To be eligible, one must rent or own a home in Franklin County and his or her total household income during the previous year must be equal to or less than 150-200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines.
These programs and services are provided thanks to funding from the private utilities including Columbia Gas of Ohio and AEP Ohio along with federal funds through the Home Weatherization Assistance Program administered through the Ohio Development Services Agency.
For more information, or if you think you may qualify for these weatherization services, please visit www.morpc.org/energy or call 614-621-1171.
