Home Uplift is a program that helps improve quality of life in our community by providing up to $10,000 in free home energy upgrades to income-qualified customers through a partnership that includes EPB, TVA, the City of Chattanooga, and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC).

If you qualify for a Home Uplift, the EPB Energy ProsSM will inspect your home and help you select up to $10,000 in energy-saving improvements that you’ll receive at absolutely no cost to you. Upgrades could include anything from new or repaired HVAC units, insulation, energy-efficient appliances, electric water heaters and more.

Most participants reported saving an average of $400 per year in energy costs and experienced improved indoor comfort and air quality — as a result, they had fewer allergy symptoms and illnesses and better sleep quality!
