Providing Oberlin With Efficiency Responsibly (POWER), founded in 2008, is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) grassroots environmental justice organization whose mission is to increase the energy efficiency of homes, small businesses, non-profit organizations, and churches in Oberlin, Ohio and the surrounding area.
POWER has helped over 400 homeowners weatherize and repair their homes to make them comfortable, affordable, and healthy.
POWER seeks to:
Make low-income individuals more financially secure in the face of rising utility costs
Improve the quality of life for Oberlin residents by creating a more comfortable home
Reduce the amount of pollution and CO2 emitted by Oberlin housing and businesses
With POWER's Home Efficiency Grants, every Oberlin resident, regardless of income, is eligible for help to pay for home weatherization.
