Small businesses can get a big break on their energy bills through an initiative from the Sustainable Living Center.
The nonprofit organization that promotes energy conservation is offering free home energy assessments to home owners/renters and small-business owners throughout Walla Walla, Franklin and Columbia counties.
The limited offer runs through next May on a first-come-first-serve basis. The organization also has energy savings kits and financial assistance for upgrades.
According to the organization’s promotional materials, upgrades on insulation, heating and cooling equipment, air sealing, duct sealing and insulating, windows and renewables projects net an average savings of 35 to 50 percent.
Those interested can learn more at sustainablelivingcenter.com or by calling 524-5218.
