    Weatherization Assistance and the Residential Energy Efficiency Center

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The U.S. Department of Energy's Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is the nation's largest residential energy efficiency program, helping low-income families to lower their energy bills. KHC receives funding for WAP through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services' Low Income Heating Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). That funding allows trained inspectors and crews from Community Action Agencies across the Commonwealth to retrofit housing for eligible individuals at no cost to the homeowner. Before doing the work, though, crew members are trained by experts at the KHC's Residential Energy Efficiency (REE) Center in Frankfort, Kentucky.

    In this episode, we talk with those expertsREE Manager Mark Adams and REE Training Specialists Dewayne Cade and Troy Gosserto learn more about weatherization, the REE Center, and the future of the program.
