WINDHAM- The Windham Neighbor to Neighbor Clean Energy Corps will be going door-to-door on the streets of Windham and Willimantic the evening of June 15. They will be joined by members of Windham’s Energy Outreach Team, including former first selectwoman Jean DeSmet, to inform residents about the various free and low-cost energy-saving measures offered through the Neighbor to Neighbor Energy Challenge. These measures include the Neighbor to Neighbor Lighting! Program, a free service that includes an in-home lighting assessment and the strategic replacement of 15-20 bulbs with more efficient ones, saving homeowners up to $200 a year. They also include Connecticut’s Home Energy Solutions Program, a state-subsidized energy assessment and tune-up that is valued at $750, saves homeowners $200-$300 a year, and costs $75 or may be free for qualifying residents. Neighbor to Neighbor also hosts free workshops about efficient lighting, home energy basics, and more advanced home energy-saving measures, hoping to demystify residential energy efficiency and provide resources on rebates, tax incentives, and the most cost-effective ways to reduce energy use and save money in your home.
