DuPage County Energy ASSISTANCE

We all want our homes to be comfortable while still keeping our energy costs affordable. However, most homes waste a significant amount of energy, resulting in discomfort and high bills. The Village of Hanover Park is continually looking for ways to assist residents and businesses live sustainable. Local nonprofit Elevate Energy helps connect homeowners with low- or no-cost energy assessments to help them find ways to be more energy efficient.
Additionally, the State of Illinois’ “Illinois Solar for All” program funds nonprofits to encourage solar projects. Elevate Energy is part of this program. In addition to energy efficiency, Elevate Energy can help connect homeowners, businesses, and non-profits with state incentives to make solar installations more affordable.
Elevate Energy is a nonprofit organization that designs and implements programs that reduce costs, protect people and the environment, and ensure the benefits of clean and efficient energy use reach those who need them most. For more information, visit their website at ElevateEnergy.org.
