On Feb. 10, CPS Energy’s Casa Verde Weatherization Program celebrated the weatherization of 30,000 homes throughout the San Antonio community.

The program is part of the Sustainable Tomorrow Plan, which launched In 2009 with the goal of reducing the community’s energy demand.

According to CPS Energy, the program helps income-qualifying homeowners and renters reduce energy loss and costs with free energy efficiency improvements. Participants receive on average $4,500 in free home weatherization improvements, saving approximately $450 a year in energy costs.

Over the next 3-5 years, CPS Energy plans to invest $82.5 million in Casa Verde to weatherize up to 16,000 homes and 20,000 multifamily units.

Measures to conserve energy could include insulation, solar screens, air-sealing measures and more.
