Energy survey seeks input from downtown Snoqualmie residents

The city of Snoqualmie is working jointly with a group of University of Washington students to learn more about current energy use and practices in downtown Snoqualmie homes and businesses.

The students and city Planning Department staff consulted with PSE to learn more about energy efficiency then developed a Home Energy Survey. The intention is for the survey to inform homeowners of rebate programs they can use to save money and improve the energy efficiency of their homes, while also providing feedback about the use of rebate programs.

The Home Energy Survey is one of the City’s most recent efforts toward building an environmentally sustainable Snoqualmie.

“Homes lacking energy-efficient insulation, windows, and appliances use a lot of energy – it’s like throwing money out the window,” said Nicole Sanders, Associate Planner at the City of Snoqualmie. “We were really pleased to have the University of Washington work with us on the survey. Using energy efficiently and saving money contributes positively to our community, and that’s at the heart of sustainability.”

Residents and business owners can access the survey on the City of Snoqualmie website. Visit www.cityofsnoqualmie.org and click “Home Energy Survey” in the “Public Feedback” box. Paper copies are available at City Hall, 38624 SE River Street in downtown Snoqualmie.

Those who complete the survey by November 20 will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $25 gift certificates to a Snoqualmie business of their choice.
