Nashville Home is First “Perfect 10” in eScore Program

A home renovation project for a Nashville-area family is paying off not only in lower power bills, but also through incentives offered by the eScore residential energy efficiency program.

The home in Joelton, Tenn., is the first in the TVA service area to score a perfect 10 out of 10 in the eScore program, which rates homes on a scale of one to 10 in terms of overall energy efficiency. Homeowner Erik Daugherty and his family chose to make improvements to their 30-year-old home using the incentives through eScore, an energy efficiency program offered by TVA in conjunction with local power companies throughout the Tennessee Valley.

Through eScore, the Daughtreys received rebates on air and duct sealing, attic insulation and other items—all of which will help reduce their power bills while keeping them comfortable in their home.

 A TVA-certified auditor completed an on-site inspection of the completed upgrades and evaluated other items on the eScore list and determined the home was the first “perfect 10” encountered since the program rolled out last year.

eScore provides homeowners with a clear path to reach a 10 out of 10 score, making homes as energy efficient as possible. The program allows homeowners to work toward the top score at their own pace, earning incentives along the way and continuing as long as necessary to reach the best possible home energy performance.

eScore launched throughout the Valley in December 2014, and is currently offered in roughly 150 local power company service areas.

One of the most exciting parts about living in an energy efficient home has been the noticeable improvement in air quality. I almost never have to dust, the air feels fresh and I have peace of mind that my two children are growing up in a healthy indoor environment. To top it off, our home is cozy all year round and we have low energy bills.
