Save Energy, Money And The Future With The Weatherization Program

Saturday, July 24, 2010

Greensboro, NC -- There is a way you can save energy, money and the future by using a federal and state funded program.

The weatherization program is for people living in Randolph, Davidson, Guilford, Forsyth and Rockingham Counties. This program helps the elderly, people with disabilities, and low-income families to reduce their energy bills by making their home more energy efficient.

All weatherization work is free to qualified applicants based on the income for household members 18 and over.

The weatherization program can include all or some of the following: caulking, insulating, sealing air leaks, installing a vapor barrier, installing a Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector, and replacing existing light bulbs with CFL bulbs.

Weatherization can be performed on houses as well as mobile homes. People who own or rent may qualify. Apartment complex owners may also qualify. There is no age limitation. 

Benny Wofford and Tanzy Sierra from Regional Consolidated Services say the green movement has given everyone more of an awareness toward energy conservation. It's made their jobs easier because it seems more relevant now than it has ever been.

Making homes more energy efficient has an impact that can be measured in many different ways. It makes our homes safer and more comfortable, it lessens our dependence on foreign oil, and it keeps our electricity providers from having to build additional power plants to meet a growing need for energy. In essence, it's doing more with less.

The stimulus has given some much needed additional funding to the weatherization program, and it has allowed most programs to buy new equipment, provide training to new and existing employees, and serve more clients that might not get our services otherwise. An added benefit is that people without employment can begin new careers in weatherization.
