Home and Small Business Energy Audits

Thank you for your interest in the BN Energy Bright Energy Assessment Program where the Ecology Action Center provides energy assessments for residents and small businesses in Bloomington and Normal. We are excited to help you start saving energy!


The EAC is currently conducting in-home and virtual energy audits. The EAC requests that for on-site audits all individuals present (that are currently eligible) be vaccinated and wear a mask during the audit. Our staff is fully vaccinated and will also wear a mask.  The EAC offers virtual assessments as an alternative for homes or businesses where individuals are not vaccinated and wearing masks, and for situations where individuals are not comfortable with in-person services.

On-site visits include a visual inspection and energy bill assessment and cost $20

  • Additional diagnostic tests can be added to the on-site assessment, including a blower door test with infrared imaging to measure air-tightness and pin-point air leaks, exhaust fan pressure testing, and combustion safety testing for natural gas appliances. On-site visits with diagnostics cost $80

Small business assessments cost $120

Virtual energy assessments are conducted via Zoom (this works best using if the homeowner uses Zoom on a smart phone or tablet) if technology allows, or staff can help provide recommendations for problem areas via emailed pictures or over the phone. Virtual assessments are free.

The EAC offers waiver for people who have a financial hardship and cannot pay the assessment fee. Please let staff know if you need a waiver when you reach out to schedule your audit.
