“I’m still in shock over not having to pay for anything.

Received $6000 in free home upgrades through the EmPower program

“I think there’s a lot of people out there that qualify for the EmPower program, but they don’t even know about it. This program is out there for people that need it. They (Standard Insulating) are good people, that have nice people working for them that are courteous and kind and they treat you with respect when they come out to your home.”
