ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – More than 1,800 income-eligible customers in Altamonte Springs will receive a complimentary energy makeover for their house, mobile home or apartment.

Through its innovative Neighborhood Energy Saver program, Duke Energy Florida will assess each home to determine if it qualifies for free attic insulation, duct sealing and more.

The program is available to residential customers (both homeowners and renters) living in communities identified by Duke Energy. Federal and state guidelines and census data are used to objectively select communities where the program would be most beneficial.

Customers will also qualify to receive up to 17 energy-saving improvements at no cost, including:

  • Digital room thermometer
  • Energy-saving showerhead or shower wand
  • One-year supply of AC filters
  • Supply of AC/furnace filters
  • Water-saving kitchen and bathroom faucet aerators
  • Energy-efficient lightbulbs
  • Water heater wraps/pipe wrap
  • Covers for window AC units
  • Caulking, weatherstripping and door sweeps
  • Insulation upgrade
  • Basic AC maintenance
  • AC duct leakage sealing

Customers will also learn how daily activities, habits and other factors can increase their electric use and raise their energy bills.

“The City of Altamonte Springs is proud of the continued relationship we share with Duke Energy,” said Pat Bates, city of Altamonte Springs mayor. “For decades, the city has been a leader in conservation and environmentally friendly initiatives; the Neighborhood Energy Saver Program promotes these same core values by educating the community about energy efficiency in the home and assisting certain households with free energy improvements.

“We are thrilled that Duke Energy is rolling out their program to our residents; collectively, individual home improvements can make a world of difference,” said Bates.

Eligible customers received an invitation to the Neighborhood Energy Saver launch event that will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 23, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Eastmonte Park Civic Center in Altamonte Springs. Customers should contact our Neighborhood Energy Saver Customer Care Center at 855.227.2918 to reserve their spot or to get more information if they cannot attend the launch event.

Since the Neighborhood Energy Saver program’s inception in 2006, the company has implemented it in more than 65 communities across Florida and installed more than 700,000 energy efficiency improvements in more than 49,000 income-eligible customers’ homes.
