Get paid to insulate your home...
It's true...
In our last issue, we passed on some information on getting your attic insulated for free.  Scroll down to the next article to read the details.
A local resident responded with this information:
Richard: I did the insulation rebate last year, and put the notice in the town newsletter, there were five people who took advantage of this last year. the reason I am responding to you is that I did not sign over the rebate papers to the company that did the insulation. They put the insulation in for .37 cents a sq. foot for a cost of about $500 for my home. I did all the paper work myself. I got rebated $500 from Qwest and a few months later got my rebate of $500 from Rocky Mtn Power, so I was paid $500 to add insulation to my attic.
When I originally looked at this program there were companies who would ask you to sign over the rebate to them and they charged you .75 cents a sqare foot and they kept the overage. It was a scam. I did some further research and found an honest provider and I got the rebate not the wholesaler of insulation. Buyer beware, everyone is out to make a profit at someone else's expense. Questar does have a list of reputable providers on their website.  

Free Insulation
Free insulation is available for your home...
Several residents in town have taken advantage of the free insulation program over the last couple of years, and we understand the program expires in 2010.
Here is an experience Mayor Truett recently had with Utah Energy Savers:
I called Energy Savers (Dan Kemp) a couple of weeks ago inquiring about 100% No Cost Attic Insulation Program.
1)      Home must be cooled by central air system
2)      Built before 2008
3)      Home must benefit from insulation upgrade.
Dan came out and measured my current attic insulation and made sure I met the above requirements (which I did).
He then called in his guys and added insulation to my attic. They were in and out within a couple of hours.
Rocky Mountain Power and Questar Gas offers a rebate program that after qualified by (Dan) will send out a rebate check to me which I will than sign over to Energy Savers for payment of services. They even filled out the rebate forms.
My experience with Dan and his team was excellent so I decided to share with all.
Energy Savers and Dan can be reached at…………
801 614 0606 Office
801 663-9272 Cell
NOTE:  I qualified for the program a couple of years ago and do not have Central Air.
Dump Open on Saturday's
The Green Waste Facility is now open on Saturdays from 10 am - 2 PM
Visit for more information.
Free Dump Days Announced
The town of Huntsville has received a Utah Community Forestry Partnership grant to be used for the initial grinding and mulching of woody, tree materials.  Much of the cost associated with the grinding is related to the transportation of the grinding equipment.  Thus, it is more cost effective to have a larger supply of woody material.
To that end, the Huntsville Green Waste Facility will allow woody tree material (tree limbs, vines, bushes, trees, twigs) to be dumped free of charge during the month of April.  Soft compost material such as leaves and grass clippings will be charged the normal rate.
Loads must be separated (woody tree material separate from soft compost material) and, again, only loads of woody tree material will be dumped free of charge.
Visit for more information.
That's All For Now - Have a nice week,
