One of the best ways to save money on a new home is to choose one that's energy-efficient. Sounds logical, and yet it's one of the last things most people look for in a new place.
In our area look for all-electric homes that are part of the energyright program. This program has been developed by the Tennessee Valley Authority together with LaFollette Utilities Board. Special features like double-pane windows, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, extra caulking and insulation make homes that are energyright.
LaFollette Utilities, in conjunction with TVA, offers a cash incentive to residential customers for the purchase of an electric water heater. Tank size must be 30 gallons or larger to qualify for rebate. The original receipt must accompany the request form.
