Home Energy Efficiency Makeover

Home Energy Efficiency Makeover

Cobb EMC partners with the Cobb Heating and Air AssociationGas South and the Cobb County Water System to give one member* a Home Energy Efficiency Makeover. The makeover shines a light on energy efficiency to show our members how energy improvement projects can lower energy consumption. It also encourages the community to nominate their neighbors whose homes are in need of energy efficient improvements. 

To be eligible to win, homeowners must live in a primary residence served by Cobb EMC and the Atlanta Gas Light Co. pipeline system and have natural gas service at their home.
