3. Is there a Community-Based HES Program?

CRI can help in community-based fundraising efforts. CRI has developed a cooperative program to work with non-profit and other civic organizations to implement the HES Program through a local grass-roots network marketing approach.

We feel it is important to give back to the communities in which we work and live. For qualified organizations, CRI will make a donation to the designated community cause; such as school, church, youth, senior, or other appropriate programs.

To learn more about how CRI can help your organization raise money while saving energy, call our Customer Service Center at (888) 403-3500 and ask to speak with our office manager.  Participation in CRI’s community-based program is subject to approval by the utility administrator(s)..

If you are a member of a community organization that is already participating in a CRI program, click on the “Schedule Your Installation” tab and follow the instructions for contacting CRI or completing the on-line application.
