ECA has produced a number of energy saving guides with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and illustrations to help you save money and energy in your home. This work has helped improve the design of ECA’s energyconservation and housing preservation programs.  Independent evaluation of a number of ECA’s energy conservation programs has also refined our program design. These publications are freely available for download. If you’re interested in purchasing professional prints of our materials, please contact Rachael Barrett at

Residents in this region are now experiencing significantly fewer premature deaths, heart attacks, and respiratory illnesses.
