The Monroe County Energy Challenge, an organization that helps our community reduce energy use in order to improve quality of life, minimize environmental impact and save money, will be hosting an event to distribute free LED light bulbs and weatherization kits (an $80 value) to residents at the Banneker Community Center on Sunday, February 19th from 2-5pm. This is a great opportunity to receive materials that will improve energy efficiency, comfort, and save money.
The organization will also be providing information about the spring Attic Insulation Program, which offers free attic air sealing and insulation to low-income households. The 2016 program helped 22 residents attain insulation, with an estimated 10-year savings of over $84,000 and a greenhouse gas reduction of over 46,000 lbs./year. This spring they will be able to offer the program again and are accepting applicants. Click the flyers below about to read about these opportunities. More information about the program can be found on their website.
