Participate in a PAID Energy Study on Residential Efficiency Research

Join 500 other local residents and support local, community campaigns to reduce energy use!


Researchers are trying to understand how winter heating fuel use compares with energy modeling predictions. Participation entails simply placing a credit-card-sized temperature sensor (like a thermometer) in your house for 15 days, and filling out a short survey

We are looking for participants who...

  • live or own a single family home
  • live within 60 miles of Ithaca
  • are age 18 years or older
  • willing to allow your indoor air temperature to be recorded for 15 days in the winter of 2015/2016
