Home Energy Savers
Learn About the Program
The Home Energy Program is designed to be a collective tool to lower utility bills. We aim to partner with homeowners to find small, practical, and affordable ways to reduce energy and water bills. Many of the upgrades are very low cost and provide immediate benefits and pay for themselves within months. We focus on bringing many small changes that add up to big impacts in reducing energy usage and utility bills. Past Efficiency upgrades include:
LED lightbulb replacements : uses 1/8th the electricity as an incandescent
Plastic Wrapping Old Windows: reduces drafts and keeps heat inside
Cleaning Dryer Vents: lowers risk of fire and workload of dryer
Refrigerator Coil Cleaning: improves operational efficiency
and, much more . . . .
Since beginning in October 2023 we have partnered with local residents to save:

Learn About the Bike Bus
The mission of Habitat for Humanity is to, “build homes, communities, and hope”. Through the energy efficiency program we are aiming to promote community-building and clean transportation by encouraging students to bike to school. The bike bus consists of a group of students biking together to school along a predetermined route with parents and volunteers. Bicycling promotes sustainability, independence, socialization, physical activity, and educational success. A bike bus is a collective and safe way to navigate the streets to school. If you are a parent of a student at Al Behrman Elementary School in Baraboo please contact us to register or learn more about the event.

The Clothesline Project
Did you know? Clothes Dryers can consume anywhere from $0.28 to $0.84 per one hour dry cycle. With a clothesline you can avoid this cost and save as much as $40 during summer! Consider getting a clothesline through Habitat for Humanity to help reduce the energy costs of running the dryer. The cost to build a clothesline is $75, repaying your investment in 2 years. After 2 years, the energy savings repay the cost of the clothesline. Every dollar saved after the initial 2 years is a dollar earned.
