Eager to make your home more efficient and save money, but not sure how? Understanding your energy use is the first step towards making your home more energy efficient.
How It WorksThe Home Energy Report provides personalized information about your energy use and smart ways to make your home more energy efficient. Each report includes:
- Information on your home’s energy use: View your home’s energy use in the context of the energy use of your neighbors’ homes that are nearby and similar in size.
- Progress tracking: You’ll also see how your home’s energy use changes over time and across seasons.
- Ideas on energy efficiency: On each report, you will find ways to save energy, including information on the rebates and other special programs LWP offers.
Who are my neighbors?
Find out if you're using more or less energy than other homes like yours in your area based on:
- Home size
- Home type (single-family, apartment, condo)
- Heating source (natural gas or electric)
Note: vacant homes are not included.
Who sees my comparison?
The comparison is compiled anonymously and not shared with anyone else—only you will know how your use compares to similar homes. LWP staff does not review individual reports unless otherwise requested and approved from the customer.
Why is LWP sending the Home Energy Report?
Our customers have asked LWP to provide energy efficiency programs and detailed information on their energy use.
The program started as a pilot in 2011 in response to the Loveland City Council receiving hundreds of letters from the community asking for more energy efficiency programs from the utility.
Beginning April 2015, all eligible Loveland residential customers began receiving the reports.

Test how efficient appliances and electronics in your home really are. The watt reader is a handy device that allows you to individually monitor the electric use and assist in identifying the high energy users.
Thanks to a collaborative effort between the Loveland Public Library and Loveland Water and Power, residents can check out watt readers to take home. The Library currently has five Watt Reader Kits available for customer use.
The Watt Reader Kits include a Kill-A-Watt power meter with instructions and an Energy Guide booklet with information about electricity usage and helpful tips to further reduce energy consumption.
How it works
Unfortunately, Loveland Water and Power does not offer any rebates for the purchase of electric and hybrid electric vehicles. However, instant rebates are available on select EV chargers through the Efficiency Works Store.
The City of Loveland has three operational charging stations around the city that are available for public use. All of these charging stations are equipped with level 2 chargers and cost $1 per hour of charge. More information about EV's as well as additional resources about charging stations can be found here.
