Non-profit Engagement Programs

APCO's Non-profit Engagement Program
A New Pilot Program to Help Non-profit organizations become more energy efficient!

There are many things that regular West Virginians can do to save energy. The best first step for AEP customers is to get a free "HomeSMART energy assessment" to learn of top priority changes that need to be made. Once you have the knowledge, you can know what changes should be made soon, and which can wait.

Non-profit organizations can free up resources by upgrading their building’s efficiency and cutting bills.

In order to encourage greater participation in Appalachian Power’s home energy assessment program and to help Non-profits start to save on their own energy bills. AEP is having a contest and rewards program for people getting their free energy assessment. Every non-profit “wins” something, as long as they sign some people up but there is a competition component to the program too. Please fill out this form carefully to pledge to sign up your home for a FREE HomeSMART Energy Assessment.

Specifically, the non-profit will get a chance to win a $10,000 energy efficiency upgrade, but will at least get $10 worth of energy efficiency improvements for everyone’s home that gets a home energy assessment. Here are the steps that a non-profit organization needs to take to participate:

1. Attend an educational training held by Appalachian Power. EEWV is planning several training sessions throughout Appalachian Power’s service territory.

2. Sign a simple memorandum of understanding with Appalachian Power.

3. Encourage your congregants and friends to get their HomeSMART Energy Assessments and let you know once they got their assessment.

4. Issue the names and addresses of participants to Appalachian Power quarterly in the upcoming year.

5. In the summer of 2016, your congregation will receive a credit for energy efficiency upgrades equal to $10 for each Appalachian Power customer that received an upgrade. The congregation with the most assessments (minimum 100) gets $10,000 worth of efficiency upgrades for the building.

6. Make the upgrades to your organization and start saving money on your energy bills!

Our partner organization West Virginia Interfaith Power & Light has been instrumental in the planning and execution of the educational training's that are needed to participate in the non-profit engagement program. EEWV has been a member of WVIPL's steering committee since its inception, and it was through that collaboration that the nonprofit engagement program was conceived. Together we have successfully held meetings in Charleston, Wheeling, Huntington, and Beckley.
