Energy Efficiency Support

Low-income weatherization for residential customers.

Reduce your energy bills with free help from TEP and its partners who serve low-income households. By improving the efficiency of your home, you will save money by using less electricity.

Since 1982, the Tucson Urban League and Pima County have been assisting low-income residents in reducing energy use and lowering their utility bills by implementing year-round weatherization measures at no cost to eligible customers. The program aims to reduce low-income customers' energy usage, reduce their utility bills, and improve their comfort.

To measure the effectiveness of the TEP weatherization program, participants will be surveyed and asked about their comfort, energy usage patterns, and overall bill reduction. Please review the program guidelines.

To qualify for the program, contact Pima County or the Tucson Urban League for an application.

Eligible applicants must have an annual household income less than 150% of the federal poverty level. Program participation is subject to funding availability.
