Don’t delay! Insulate your home TODAY and stop throwing money away!Green Summit leader Matthew Forrest speaking with Donna Hemmann, Mayor of Wethersfield, CT at the May Green Summit
Since Wethersfield entered the Neighbor to Neighbor Energy Challenge with one of the highest historical penetration rates of Home Energy Solutions visits, this year’s Green Summit in Wethersfield was aimed at getting people to dive deeper into energy savings. The first installment, held on May 26th at the Town Hall, focused on the highly attractive benefits of properly weatherizing and insulating your home.

The second installment, held on June 9th, focused on upgrading your water heating system. Since water heating accounts for 14 to 25 percent of your home’s energy use, it is the next logical place to decrease unnecessary energy waste after updating heating and cooling systems.
