We know that comfort and savings go hand-in-hand—and it’s our job to help spread those benefits. Through technical assistance and rebates, we enable homeowners and renters to make energy choices that are right for them.
For many business owners, the cost of energy can be a variable, burdensome expense. It doesn't have to be. By helping business owners reduce energy use, we help them free up monthly cash-flow and boost their bottom lines.
Since 2012, the DCSEU has worked with DOEE and local contractors to install more than 500 solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on single-family affordable housing in the District. These systems are generating enough electricity to offset nearly 70% of the energy costs on an average home in DC.*
The DCSEU offers opportunities for income-qualified residents to install solar on their single-family homes through the Solar for All program.
Building the Next Generation of the Green Workforce
Training and experience to help put DC residents on the path to success.
The DCSEU Workforce Development Program prepares DC residents for careers in energy efficiency and renewable energy, connecting them with DC companies who want to train and develop people looking for new opportunities in the green economy.
All data are based on the DCSEU’s estimates of energy savings and are subject to rigorous monitoring and veriﬁcation by a third-party evaluation ﬁrm hired by the Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE).
