WHAT IS BENHAM $AVES?
Benham $aves is a new program by the Benham Power Board that helps you, our customers, save energy and save money.
In the program, Power Board customers’ homes are upgraded to be more energy efficient. A portion of the savings from these upgrades are paid back right on the power bill while another portion stays right in the customer’s pocket. The customer pays no up-front costs. Repayment will take no more than 15 years and the customer keeps at least 15% of the savings. Once the upgrades are paid for, the customer keeps all of the savings.
The program helps our community all around. Benham residents save money by saving energy. That extra money stays right in our area to stimulate our economy. The program will also reduce the amount of energy the Power Board must buy from its wholesale power provider, helping to keep rates affordable in the long term.
