“We’re happy to co-sponsor the PowerSaver Home Makeover Contest,” says Alison DeTuncq, President/CEO of UVA Community Credit Union.  “The Contest is a great way to increase awareness of the benefits energy-efficient home improvements can provide above and beyond saving energy such as healthier and more comfortable homes, improved property values, more money in homeowners’ pockets, and a cleaner environment for our community.”

“This Contest is a unique and exciting opportunity for the Central Virginia community to learn more about their homes, as well as the different local programs available to help them save money on energy bills,” said Cynthia Adams, Executive Director of LEAP and co-sponsor of the PowerSaver Home Makeover Contest.  “Through this program and Contest, it’s easy to increase the value of homes through repairs or upgrades.”
