Technical Assistance

Energy Alabama provides technical assistance to help non-profits, governments, businesses, and regular Alabamians access the benefits sustainable energy.

But what does this mean?

It means we’re conducting energy audits for non-profits, managing bid processes for companies going solar, helping local governments craft good programs, and more.

We focus on programs that deploy clean technology and demonstrable savings.

What we are doing now:

Energy Alabama runs three programs aimed at increasing energy efficiency and renewable energy:

Saving Generations

Saving Generations is a collaborative program to educate and install energy efficient upgrades for low-income families in Madison County. The program educates and inspires the next generation of servant leaders by partnering with the Emerging Leaders program at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) to train them on the economic and environmental value of energy efficiency. Students take an active role in working with families in Madison County to install energy efficient measures at no cost to the participants.

Saving Generations is a collaborative effort of Leadership Huntsville/Madison County Class 33, Village of Promise, CASA of Madison County, UAH, Energy Alabama, Nexus Energy Center, and Energy Huntsville.
