Energy Efficiency/ Conservation
The City of North Richland Hills is doing its part to save energy and help protect our environment. In recent years, many City facilities have been updated with energy efficient lighting, windows, air conditioning and heating equipment. The City has also replaced 1,672 traffic signals with energy efficient LED traffic signals.
Weatherization Assistance Program
The Weatherization Assistance Program provides services to improve the energy efficiency of income eligible households in Tarrant County. Weatherization Program Technicians will perform an energy assessment to determine which energy saving repair or service is most appropriate and cost-effective for each home. This program is coordinated through the City of Fort Worth's Community Action Partners (CAP). For information on eligibility requirements please call 817 392-5790 or visit http://fortworthtexas.gov/pacs/cap
Help Conserve Energy
Because lighting accounts for nearly 20 percent of the average home’s electric bill, changing to more efficient options not only makes a dent in the amount of fossil fuels power plants must burn to generate electricity, but will also help reduce your electric bills. Every compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL), uses at least two thirds less energy than a standard incandescent and lasts as much as 10 times longer. Over the life of a single CFL, you can save an average of $30 or more in electricity costs while preventing more than 450 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions. Visit the Energy Star website
