UGI Encourages Customers to Consider Energy Efficiency Measures During Home Improvement Projects
07 Apr 2022
As residents take on home improvement projects with the advent of warmer weather, UGI encourages homeowners to include energy-efficiency measures in their plans. UGI’s SaveSmart program provides rebates on a variety of energy-savings steps for both residential and business customers.
For example, installing an ENERGY STAR® certified smart thermostat can earn customers a rebate while saving them money on their energy bill and reducing their carbon footprint. If everyone in the United States installed an ENERGY STAR® certified smart thermostat, customer savings would be $740 million dollars per year and would offset 13 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions.
UGI customers who are income-qualified, may be eligible for free energy efficiency and weatherization services. To learn more about enrollment in UGI’s Low Income Usage Reduction Program (LIURP), customers can call 800-UGI-WARM or visit www.ugi.com/liurp.
