The city partners with a local nonprofit, Center for Energy and Environment (CEE), to offer discounted Home Energy Squad enhanced visits to Woodbury homeowners. The enhanced visit program evaluates homes for energy efficiency opportunities.
As an incentive, the city will buy down the cost of the program's Energy Planner Visits. These visits include the installed items listed above plus a comprehensive energy audit with a blower-door test to measure for air leaks, insulation inspection, safety check on heating system and water heater and recommendations for next steps. Normally $100, Woodbury residents only pay $70 for this visit.
Free in-person visits are also available to income-qualified households.
Each spring, the city partners with local trash and recycling haulers to offer a one-time, reduced-fee curbside recycling pick-up. Information on the 2022 Curbside Recycling Event will be posted when available.
