Homeowners, tenants, landlords, and small commercial businesses can all benefit from the program. How$mart® provides money for energy efficiency improvements such as insulation, air sealing, and new heating and cooling systems. Participating Members repay the funds through energy savings on their monthly Jackson Energy bills.
A monthly How$mart® surcharge covers the cost of qualifying improvements, and the surcharge is estimated to be less than the projected savings. Additionally, the How$mart® surcharge is tied to the location. If you move or sell the property, the next Member pays the surcharge, but full disclosure is required. The How$mart® principal balance can be paid ‘in full’ with no penalty for early payoff at any time.
Participating Members must start with an energy audit to determine potential savings. Jackson Energy will develop a conservation plan with recommended improvements. Landlords and tenants must jointly agree to participate in the How$mart® program.

Some of Jackson Energy’s local community action agencies have partnered with Jackson Energy and East Kentucky Power Cooperative to provide additional incentives in their weatherization program. Click the link below for more information.
