The rehabilitation of Lawrence Avenue began as part of the City of Avondale’s low income housing assistance program. The intent of the program is to help our neighbors who face extreme financial hardship by way of life safety and energy home improvements.
Desert Skies Energy is contracted with the City of Avondale to perform energy evaluations for existing homes to develop cost-effective solutions. Once our solutions have been approved, a licensed contractor completes the renovations. Once complete, Desert Skies Energy provides a test-out inspection to ensure the work was done according to Avondale’s standards.
The result of this project was an annual savings of $490 for the client. With solar that was previously installed, the HERS Score for this project was a -9, resulting in a net-zero energy home. This home will now produce more energy than it consumes over the course of the year.
