Home Energy Efficiency Makeover

Cobb EMC partners with the Cobb Heating and Air Association and Gas South to give one deserving Cobb EMC member a Home Energy Efficiency Makeover. The makeover shines a light on energy efficiency to show our members how energy improvement projects can lower energy consumption. It also encourages the community to nominate their neighbors whose homes are in need of energy efficient improvements.
