From a City of Decatur press release…
The City of Decatur is proud to announce that the Atlanta Decatur Home Makeover Contest will be launching this week. Through a partnership between the City of Atlanta and City of Decatur, two lucky homeowners will receive free energy efficiency improvements – worth up to $10,000 – that will increase the overall comfort of their home and reduce their energy bills. Makeovers will be awarded to homeowners in each city. We anticipate that this contest is going to be a great way to get homeowners thinking about energy efficiency, and hopefully drive them to the DecaturWISE and Atlanta SHINE rebate program.
…The Home Energy Makeover Contest will run through August 19, 2011. Interested homeowners in both cities should visit www.homeenergymakeovers.net to sign up. Contest entrants must be at least 21 years of age and own a single family home in City of Atlanta or City of Decatur. A panel of qualified judges will evaluate entries select a minimum of 8 finalists. Finalists will each receive a free energy use analysis conducted by a certified contractor. After review, contest judges will choose a minimum of 2 winners. The winners’ homes must each be a structurally sound residence and meet specific technical requirements. All determinations by the judges will be final.
Decatur residents can call (678) 553-6577 for more information. Atlanta residents can call (404) 954-8500.
