Madison’s Home Energy Audit Program

Since 2017, the Mayor & Council, Environmental Commission, and Sustainable Madison Committee have endorsed an initiative to provide Madison residents with affordable home energy audits. The Borough of Madison $49 Home Energy Assessment program streamlines the process of choosing a home energy auditor, making the process more understandable and accessible. Ciel Power LLC was awarded the contract to become the officially recognized home energy audit contractor for Madison. Ciel has also administered similar programs in Summit, Millburn, Princeton, Glen Rock, and Highland Park, New Jersey.

Over 300 Madison households have taken advantage of audits by Ciel Power.
