The Town of Chapel Hill is conducting a Town-wide energy efficiency program for homeowners called WISE Homes & Building Program. The Town will provide subsidies that will lower the cost of eligible home improvements by 25-50%. These subsidies are designed to incent “deep” energy efficiency improvements, meaning 15% or greater energy savings per home.
