The Local Energy Alliance Program has partnered with the City of Manassas and neighboring jurisdictions as well as financial groups to sponsor a Northern Virginia Home Energy Makeover Contest.
Homeowners in Northern Virginia are eligible to win nine prizes including home energy makeovers ranging from $3,000 to $10,000. The contest’s Nonprofit Challenge allows entrants to enter the name of their favorite local nonprofit to help it win a $1,500 cash donation.
“We are happy to be a part of the Northern Virginia Home Energy Makeover Contest,” said Shane Cochrane, division chief for Alexandria’s Office of Housing. “Installing Energy Star certified products is just one important way to lessen your home’s energy use, and we hope this contest will help our residents learn more about the Home Performance with Energy Star program.”
The contest, which is sponsored in part by Dominion Virginia Power and the Dominion Foundation, runs through Sept. 21. Winners will be announced in October.

Other official partners include local governments and financing institutions, such as Arlington Community Federal Credit Union, Commonwealth One Federal Credit Union and the Northern Virginia Regional Commission.
