Energy conservation and affordability are common goals that Holland Board of Public Works shares with our community. We offer a variety of programs that help our customers make environmentally conscious decisions about their energy usage. We also have an income qualified assistance program to help with your utility bill in times of need.
Elective Renewable Energy
You can contribute to making our community a greener place by choosing to have a portion, or all of your electricity generated by renewable sources. Holland Board of Public Works is now offering elective renewable energy for all customers.
Are you planning to install your own renewable energy generator? Holland Board of Public Works has a Distributed Generation (DG) program for HBPW customers who generate electric power using their own solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal, energy storage system or qualified biomass resources. DG helps lower your electric bill and continue to access to the HBPW electric grid as a back up.
Income Qualified Assistance
If you're recently unemployed or meet the income qualifications, you may be eligible for assistance offered through the Ottawa County Community Action Agency and the Allegan County Resource Development Committee.
Free Home Energy Check-up
Schedule an in-home checkup to discover many ways to save on your utility bills. Each checkup includes a 60-90 minute assessment by a Building Performance Institute certified technician, who will provide a list of recommendations that are specific to your home. You'll also get a folder full of electric and water saving tips, plus all the energy and water-saving devices listed below can be installed by request, at no extra cost!
Appliance Recycling Incentives
Outdated technologies can be inefficient and proper disposal of electric appliances is important for the health of the environment. Holland BPW will pay you to recycle old appliances and will pick them up from your home, free of charge.
