The Governor’s Office of Energy has partnered with Nevada Housing Division (NHD) to provide the Home Energy Retrofit Opportunities for Seniors (H.E.R.O.S.) program. The program assists with reducing energy costs for Nevada seniors by improving the energy efficiency of their home. The program is provided at no cost to income qualified seniors who own their own home.

GOE created the H.E.R.O.S. program and funds it. NHD administers the program through a network of non-profit Service Provider agencies throughout the State of Nevada.

“The H.E.R.O.S. weatherization program offers Nevada’s low-income seniors a way to save money, conserve energy, and live in healthier, safer homes. I encourage all eligible Nevadans to take advantage of this free resource and I thank the Office of Energy for instituting this important program to help serve our senior population,” said Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval.
