During the cold winter months, energy costs can skyrocket. People living in older, less energy efficient homes can suffer the most. MORPC offers home energy efficiency (weatherization) and safety services at no cost to income-eligible residents in Franklin County. The program helps keep homeowners and renters warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, all while lowering energy bills. These programs are available all year to qualified renters (with landlord’s permission) and homeowners.
