What is TC Saves?
TC Saves is a partnership between the City of Traverse City, Traverse City Light and Power, and two local non-profits, SEEDS and the Michigan Land Use Insitute.
Last winter, almost two hundred of your neighbors made a great discovery: They could make their homes cozier in the winter, cooler in the summer, and less expensive to operate all year round. Today we are writing to offer you the same opportunity, via a remarkably convenient, city-sponsored program called TC Saves.
TC Saves can make your home far more comfortable and energy efficient and, at the same time, create more local jobs and make our town an even better place to live.
TC Saves was a big hit in our Oak Park and Traverse Heights neighborhoods. Maybe you saw the green signs in the yards of some of the 200 homeowners who signed up. Now, because of our big initial success, we are able to offer it to you, too!
This unique partnership among the City, Traverse City Light & Power, and two local non-profits connects you to qualified professionals. They show you exactly how much energy your home is wasting, where to plug leaks, and a customized path to increasing your comfort and cutting your heating, cooling, and other energy bills.
Even better, getting started costs very little and includes several immediate, important, complimentary efficiency upgrades. Here is how it works:
Your $100 investment in an energy assessment brings a qualified contractor to your home to analyze all of its energy uses, identify the big and small problems, and install power-saving CFL light bulbs and programmable thermostat upgrades.
Then, you have an opportunity to make your home even thriftier and more comfortable by investing in other, customized energy-saving measures. Whether it’s attic insulation, new windows, or an Energy Star furnace, TC Saves offers you additional, money-saving incentives and, for a limited time, 2.99% APR financing!
Funding for this locally managed, federal program runs out soon, so we must offer it on a strictly first-come, first served basis. There is literally no better time than right now to eliminate your home’s high utility bills, drafty rooms, ice dams and more.
Don’t miss this opportunity! Space is limited and you can sign up now at www.tcsaves.com, or call 231-620-1060.
I hope you’ll join your neighbors and take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
