Energy Audits/Assessments

Energy Audits/Assessments

All home energy audits/assessments are performed by Shelby Electric Cooperative's own BPI certified Energy Auditor. The home owner must be present for all activities related to the energy assessment/audit. A rental property will not be inspected without the home owner unless written, signed consent has been made. We ask the home owner to assist in the audit by taking notes; a copy is kept by the home owner and the cooperative at the end of the audit for reference to all items discussed. It is helpful to have any natural gas or propane bills available during the process as our home inspector will look at all energy consumption within the home.

The service charges below will be added to the member's electric bill in the billing cycle following the audit/assessment.
