WASHINGTON, DC — The Department of Energy (DOE) announced that it is awarding West Virginia $3,251,749 to improve the energy efficiency of low-income households in the state.

“This weatherization assistance grant will enable West Virginia to provide energy-saving home improvements to hundreds of low-income families this year,” Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham said. “Weatherization is a priority of the president, as outlined in his National Energy Plan and his budget proposal for 2003. Weatherization reduces an average home’s energy cost by $218 each year.”

By improving the energy efficiency of homes, the Weatherization Assistance Program reduces the burden of energy costs for low-income Americans, especially households with elderly residents, people with disabilities, and children.

West Virginia’s grants will be handled through the state’s Office of Economic Opportunity in Charleston.
