The RSVP (Retired & Senior Volunteer Program) of Fairfield, is offering a free home Energy-Savings consultation service to qualified Fairfield residents. A trained RSVP volunteer will visit with householders for 1 hour and educate and/or assist residents with a range of basic energy savings measures and install a new furnace filter (leaving extra filters with the householder to install each month following the consultation). To be eligible for receiving this service, residents must live within Fairfield city limits & meet income qualifications.
See following chart to qualify:

During a scheduled consultation appointment, the RSVP-trained volunteer will inform the resident about measures they can begin taking immediately to reduce their residential energy usage as well as perform other tasks including adjusting the water heater temperature, re-setting refrigerator temperatures, discuss ways to reduce overall water usage, and how to reduce energy consumption by using CFL/LED light bulbs vs. incandescent bulbs.
The intended impact for this volunteer service is increased knowledge of reduced home energy usage for Fairfield residents, as well as savings reflected on their monthly utility bills.
If you are a qualified resident (see chart) and would like to receive the benefit from this free service program or you are age 55+ and would like to be trained to be an RSVP volunteer, call RSVP Director JoBeth Lewer at 641-919-4752 .
