• City of Houston Residential Energy Efficiency Program Locations

    The Residential Energy Efficiency Program (REEP) provided income-qualified Houstonians the opportunity to receive the implementation of weatherization measures for their homes at no charge. This program ended in 2014.

    The City of Houston receives an annual funding allocation from Centerpoint Energy for this program. These funds allow us to reduce energy consumption for Houstonians by installing energy efficiency upgrades such as CFL light bulbs, door weather-stripping, caulking, wall and attic insulation, air conditioners, HVAC system upgrades, refrigerators, solar screens and more. The efficiency upgrades are based on a custom assessment of each home that will determine the measures needed to make the home more energy efficient. This assessment and audit tool (NEAT) is the national standard audit process recognized by the Department of Energy (D.O.E) and the State of Texas. The audit assessment and installation of the energy efficiency measures are done at no cost to homeowners.

    Additionally, this program allows us to create opportunities for local contractors while simultaneously educating residents on how to create a healthy and energy efficient environment in their home. We have truly enjoyed working with the residents of the City of Houston over the past 7 years and are looking forward to weatherizing more homes in the future.
