Income and Age Qualifying Support

LEAP works to provide income and age qualifying home energy-efficiency programs for customers of the following utilities:

  • Dominion Energy
  • Appalachian Electric
  • Columbia Gas
  • Charlottesville Gas

These programs provide free or reduced cost money-saving services to qualified owners and renters, or landlords and property managers whose residents qualify. Single-family homes, multi-family homes (apartments or condos), and mobile homes all qualify. To help save on energy costs, qualifying customers can receive a free energy assessment and may be eligible for free energy-saving measures.

Through generous support from the City of Charlottesville, LEAP is offering Energy Smart Rebates (up to $500 total per home to city homeowners) for select energy-efficiency upgrades. Rebates are designed for upgrades and retrofits; not available for new construction.

Please contact LEAP to schedule installation measures and access your applicable rebates.

Home Energy Assessment

LEAP is now providing City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County residents with reduced-cost Home Energy Assessments (includes free LED bulbs!) for single-family houses, row houses, and some types of condos. Sign-up today for a Home Energy Assessment.
