…We’ve partnered with Athens County to deliver a low cost-high savings impact product that costs less than you’ll spend!

We’re You Partner in Aggregation, Energy Efficiency and Renewables
Empower Gas & Electric (the company behind the Empower Athens program) won a contract from the County and City as your official provider of energy efficiency and renewable programs. In November 2013, the citizens of this community approved an electric aggregation measure. Today, the homeowners and small businesses within the aggregation area have pooled together to negotiate a lower cost for electricity from AEP Energy.

In addition, your community sought to introduce easy-to-fund energy-savings efforts as part of the aggregation strategy. Empower G&E was selected to provide services to achieve your community’s desired energy strategy.

About our energy efficiency product

Our package includes attic or crawl space insulation by Owens Corning, air sealing of the home from the outside elements, LED light bulbs that last 50% longer than CFL bulbs, and an ecobee smart thermostat that helps you manage your home’s energy use more effectively. These simple upgrades can save homeowners a lot of money on their energy bills, and most homeowners see a return on their investment in as little as two years.
