eScore In-Home Energy Evaluation
eScore is a program developed through a partnership between TVA and Decatur Utilities. eScore provides homeowners with a simple way to make existing homes as energy-efficient as possible.
1. Go to www.2escore.com and register your account.
2. Find and select a member of our Quality Contractor Network. Select a contractor and begin making energy efficiency improvements. Even if you have already had work performed by a QCN member, you can request rebates and financing - just provide them with your eScore Customer Site ID.
3. Request an eScore evaluation. Evaluations are conducted by Conservative Services Group, an authorized TVA contractor. The fee for the evaluation is $150. Your home will receive a "eScore" rating from 1 to 10 and a list of recommended steps you can take to improve your energy efficiency and increase your eScore. You can implement all of the recommendations at once OR do them in phases. Either way, every step you take will help improve your efficiency and reduce your energy consumption.
Financing is provided by Regions Bank. A minimum beacon score of 625 is required. Once approved, a member of the Quality Contractor Network can perform the work and your payment amount will be added to your monthly DU bill. Applications are available from any QCN member.
If you already had the work performed by a QCN member, give them your eScore Customer Site ID to apply for retroactive financing.
