The Button-Up Weatherization Program offers an incentive to members for reducing the heat loss of their home. This program is available to all residential members served by Shelby Energy. Your home must be at least 2 years old and your primary source of heat must be electric.
The Button-up program consists of 3 levels of weatherization, for which incentives are paid.
***To receive these incentives, a Shelby Energy representative must perform a “pre” and “post” inspection/blower door and duct leakage test of the home to measure BTU’s reduced.***
Level I: The insulation portion of the Button-Up incentive will promote the reduction of energy usage on the part of the member. It provides an incentive of $40.00 per 1,000 BTU’s reduced, up to $520.00 resulting from insulation improvements.
Level I w/Air Sealing: Reduces energy usage through air sealing by the member. Air Sealing could include caulking, improving weather stripping, sealing attic accesses, etc. The incentive paid is $40.00 per 1,000 BTU’s reduced up to $750.00.
Level II: Reduces energy with a whole house approach and all problems at one time. A reduction of 26,500 BTU’s pays the full Level I incentive plus an additional $310.00 for a total of $1,060.00.
Level III: Reduces energy with a whole house approach, but the reduction has to be 34,250 BTU’s. The incentive paid is the full level I plus $620.00 for a total of $1,370.00 .
