Our Utility Assistance Program helps you keep your home connected
BakerRipley’s Weatherization Assistance program is on a mission to enhance home comfort and energy efficiency, saving you money in the process. Thanks to the Department of Housing and Community Affairs services are FREE for qualifying households.
Creating Long-Term Energy Solutions
Our dedicated team helps to mitigate areas where hot air permeates the home, such as around doors, windows, and HVAC ducts. We replace select appliances with Energy Star models and install LED (Light Emitting Diode) light bulbs, low-flow showerheads and sink faucets, attic and wall insulation, and solar screens to block window heat.
