OLHSA recognized at DTE Energy’s Excellence in Energy Efficiency Celebration Posted: November 23, 2015

On November 5, OLHSA was recognized by DTE Energy for helping to run successful programs:  the Refrigerator Replacement Program and the Test and Tune Program, provided as part of DTE Energy’s Residential Energy Efficiency Assistance. Through these programs OLHSA and DTE Energy are helping low-income families reduce energy costs in their homes. 

So far in 2015, OLHSA has processed thousands of refrigerator replacement applications and 1,122 people received new, ENERGY STAR replacement refrigerators with the help of DTE Energy.

The Test and Tune program allows for a technician to come into residential homes and perform a thorough cleaning and tune-up of natural gas furnaces. Like the refrigerator replacement program, the furnace tune-up can help the heating system run more smoothly, thus saving energy. So far OLHSA has helped secure test and tunes for 226 people in 2015.
