For Energy Awareness Month, the City of Minneapolis wants homeowners and renters to know some ways to save energy and money. And for people getting ready to sell a home, these could help sellers get ready for the ordinance taking effect Jan. 15 to provide energy information. Everyone in Minneapolis deserves to live in a comfortable, affordable home.

Plug in to savings

Thousands of households already benefit from the Home Energy Squad program, saving hundreds of dollars every year and enjoying a more comfortable house during the cold winter nights ahead.

Plan ahead if selling your house

Starting Jan. 15, homebuyers will be able to learn energy information about a Minneapolis home before they sign on the dotted line. That means sellers will need to include energy efficiency characteristics in the already-required Truth in Sale of Housing report. It covers information on the home’s insulation, heating system and windows. If the home has had a Home Energy Squad assessment, it automatically gets the Truth in Sale of Housing evaluation covered. And if you make energy efficiency improvements for a more resilient, energy efficient home, you’ll get a higher score.
