Program Info

SEEDS offers FREE Home Energy Assessments to residents of Wayne and Pike Counties. Due to some additional funding, we are now offering this service to residents in Lackawanna County as well.


Like using a personal trainer to improve your health, this SEEDS program allows you to make saving money on energy a priority, and provides simple steps and advice to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Each year, we select local high school students who are passionate about the environment, and make good ambassadors for SEEDS. They undergo training in basic building science and arrive at your home, accompanied by adult SEEDS volunteers,  prepared to guide you to greater efficiency.

SEEDS is very grateful to the PA Department of Environmental Protection for conitnued support, and Overlook Foundation. Most recently, the Clif Bar Family Foundation provided funds to help us enhance this program. This enabled us to hire an additional student, and create a better program for you!

SEEDS has sponsored a scholarship since 2016 in memory of Michael “Jake” Burkhardt. “If all of us did as much as Jake had accomplished in his short, shining life, I would not worry about our planet”, stated SEEDS Executive Director Jocelyn, who worked with Jake on the free energy assessment program.
