Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval Announces Energy Efficiency Initiative for Low-Income Seniors

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval recently announced the Home Energy Retrofit Opportunities for Seniors (HEROS) weatherization program, which enables low-income seniors who live in owner-occupied units to implement energy efficiency measures at no cost.

The Home Energy Retrofit Opportunities for Seniors (H.E.R.O.S.) weatherization program, funded by the Governor’s Office of Energy and administered by the Nevada Housing Division, provides an energy assessment of a qualifying senior’s home and installation of recommended weatherization measures. Efficiency measures can include services such as installation of solar screens and insulation, HVAC repairs, and emergency replacement of failed heating and cooling equipment, up to a value of $6,000 per home.

“The H.E.R.O.S. weatherization program offers Nevada’s low-income seniors a way to save money, conserve energy, and live in healthier, safer homes. I encourage all eligible Nevadans to take advantage of this free resource and I thank the Office of Energy for instituting this important program to help serve our senior population,” said Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval.
