WILTON—The town continues to make good on its pledge to use clean energy, with the Board of Selectmen agreeing to increase municipal clean energy to 30 percent of its output by 2015, it was announced at its regular meeting Monday night.
This Saturday, Aug. 6th, and next Saturday, Aug. 13th, the Lebanon Neighbor to Neighbor Energy Challenge will hold two bulb swaps at the Lebanon Transfer Station. Residents are invited to come exchange four working incandescent bulbs for four new energy-efficient CFLs, which could save an average Connecticut home up to $125 a year.
Westport currently leads as the most energy-efficient town in the Neighbor to Neighbor program, with its residents recording the most assessments, as well as the most follow-up home energy efficiency improvements. The resulting energy savings from this work equate to taking approximately 1,100 cars off the road for one year.
Neighbor to Neighbor is helping Weston families reduce their energy use by 20% in part through the Home Energy Solutions (HES) program. An HES visit helps residents reduce their energy waste by determining where energy is lost in the home and addressing those issues on the spot.
