By Mark Bullock - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Most of Alabama's power companies offer do-it-yourself energy audits at their web sites. Many of the sites offer printable check lists, which you can use while walking through your home. The Alabama Power site also includes a virtual energy efficient home tour.

For customers who have serious energy issues or unusually high power bills, some of the electric cooperatives also offer free in-home energy audits.

Below is a list of links to the various companies. Call your provider for more information.
