The Vernon County Energy District is sponsoring an energy assessment program to support increased energy efficiency, decarbonization, and electrification in Vernon County.


Assessments will provide:

  • Detailed information on energy usage and costs in your home

  • Sources of energy waste in your home

  • Your energy goals

  • A comprehensive plan for gaining increased energy efficiency in your home

The Pre-Energy Assessment Questionnaire will help us to learn about how you manage your energy usage and better understand what kind of technologies are being used county-wide. 


If you are open to providing your contact information, our Energy Assessment Specialist team will utilize the information you provide to create a report that offers an overview of your current energy use, potential updates available, and cost-saving opportunities you may qualify for. They will work together with you to set short- and long-term energy goals. 


The procedure involves filling an online or paper survey that will take approximately 15 minutes. The survey is divided into several sections including: home, transportation, outdoor equipment, energy sources, and demographics. Based on the information provided and your interest, the VCED Energy Assessment Specialist will reach out to schedule an in-home energy assessment and/or provide a detailed assessment of your energy and cost-saving needs and opportunities. 

Information that you provide will be kept confidential. The results of this survey will be used for your energy assessment as well as aggregated for county-wide energy planning.
