Here’s how it works

If your application meets the initial criteria, EPB Energy Pros will contact you to schedule a free home energy assessment to finish confirming your eligibility. Then, they’ll identify the home improvements that can most effectively reduce your monthly power bill and increase comfort. Once you approve the recommended home energy upgrades, the EPB Energy Pros team will make arrangements for renovations at no cost to you. And rest assured, EPB and our partners carefully follow a rigorous set of health protocols to keep you, your family and our team members safe.

Since launching in 2015, EPB has worked with hundreds of homeowners through Home Uplift to provide upgrades that have dramatically reduced their power bills, energy usage and significantly enhanced the comfort and air quality of their homes

Home Uplift is a community-driven program staffed by EPB Energy Pros with funding from EPB, TVA, City of Chattanooga, and TDEC.
