for Affordable Housing, Clinics, & Shelters
Save In Your DC Home
We know that comfort and savings go hand-in-hand—and it’s our job to help spread those benefits. Through technical assistance and incentives, we enable homeowners and renters to make energy choices that are right for them.
Save In Your DC Business
For many business owners, the cost of energy can be a variable, burdensome expense. It doesn't have to be. By helping business owners reduce energy use, we help them free up monthly cash-flow and boost their bottom lines.
Since 2012, the DCSEU has worked with DOEE and local contractors to install more than 500 solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on single-family affordable housing in the District. These systems are generating enough electricity to offset nearly 70% of the energy costs on an average home in DC.*
From Dollars To Chili Dogs
Business in the District is in the green.
Spending locally to make energy investments helps businesses in the District prosper and benefit from more than just energy savings. When businesses like Ben’s Chili Bowl can find ways to cut costs, they can hire more people, expand their business, and help to keep the District’s economy growing.
All data are based on the DCSEU’s estimates of energy savings and are subject to rigorous monitoring and veriﬁcation by a third-party evaluation ﬁrm hired by the Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE).
