SEEDS Offers FREE Home Energy Efficiency Assessments to Lackawanna County Residents

May 29, 2022

LACKAWANNA COUNTY – SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education & Development Support) is offering FREE Home Energy Efficiency Assessments to low-income residents of Lackawanna County. 

A SEEDS Home Energy Efficiency Assessment will help residents conserve energy, improve their home’s comfort level, and save money. Their assessment team will inspect the interior and exterior of the residence and provide simple steps and advice for improving the home’s energy efficiency. By improving the home’s energy use, households can save a significant amount of money on energy bills annually and reduce fossil-fuel dependency. 

The SEEDS assessment team members are trained by a course designed by a certified building analyst professional. The team is not affiliated with any business, and assessments are fully funded by membership dues and grants, so residents can rest assured that they are receiving impartial recommendations for reducing energy bills and/or fossil-fuel dependency. While SEEDS volunteers are trained in energy assessment techniques, they are not certified energy auditors. Their assessments are for educational and informational purposes only. 

The 2022 program, funded in part by the Scranton Community Foundation’s Robert H. Spitz Foundation grant, will run from June to August. Those interested in applying for a free energy efficiency assessment should contact Program Coordinator, Zoe Spaide, at
