The weather outside may not be frightful.
Of course, that could change any second. And when it does, some Westporters will spend plenty of money heating their homes.
Others — not so much.
One difference is energy efficiency — including hard-to-manage and often-overlooked areas like insulation.
Help is at hand. In fact, it has been for a couple of years.
Since March of 2010, over 300 Westporters have taken the “Home Energy Challenge.” That puts us Number One — ahead of 13 other towns — in a contest for the most “Home Energy Solutions” visits and upgrades.
The goal is for 1,000 residents to decrease their energy consumption by 20% by July 2013. It’s a worthy aim — with benefits for your own home, and the environment at large.
Need another incentive to “join the Challenge” — besides the fact that for just $75, you’ll reap hundreds of dollars in savings?
Well, for every home energy upgrade commitment made by the end of February, a blanket will be donated to a family or child in need.
That should warm your heart (and home) too.
