To qualify, you must live in a single–family home or 2–4 unit apartment/condo in the parts of Burien, White Center, North Highline, SeaTac, Tukwila, and Skyway served by Seattle City Light, and the northern part of the Central District.”

Here’s more info on City Light’s Powerful Neighborhoods program:

The Powerful Neighborhoods program is a pilot program designed to reach customers who may not have taken advantage of our energy conservation programs in the past. These customers include senior citizens, non-English-speaking households and low-income customers.

We hope that by offering to make home visits and providing energy-saving products, we can educate customers about energy conservation and motivate them to take actions to save money and electricity.

Seattle City Light is working with Ecos Consulting, Cascadia Consulting, Environmental Coalition of South Seattle (ECOSS), and the Working Green to hire and train installers, schedule home visits, provide translations, and deliver and install the products.

All installers have undergone background checks and drug-screening. Installers fluent in Spanish, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Amharic, Cantonese and other languages will be available to visit homes where those languages are primarily spoken.

This project received funding support from the Federal Government under the American Recovery and Revitalization Act (ARRA)

In 2010 The Powerful Neighborhoods program successfully served more than 7,000 homes in south Seattle, installing more than 130,000 compact fluorescent light bulbs, reducing energy consumption by more than 24 million kWh and saving our customers more than $2.2 million on their energy bills.
