You can be the renter, the owner or live in the home that you own. The home must have electric heat and be at least 20 years old. There are income requirements and the home must pass a pre-audit to receive retrofits. The homeowner or another responsible adult must attend a “Savings in the House” workshop.Previous story: Energy upgrades helping transform older Knoxville homes
