The Community Energy Challenge
The Community Energy Challenge (CEC) is a Greater Franklin County volunteer-based winterization initiative. A simple, low-cost strategy of interior storm window panels keeps heat inside homes during the harsh winter months and encourages homeowners to make positive changes in their energy consumption. Homeowners participate in workshops when possible, and become more proactive in their homes and lives.
2016 Workshops were very successful and over 43 different volunteers were responsible for helping us build 122 panels! Workshops were held in the basement of Henderson Memorial Baptist Church, Academy St, Farmington.
We are already starting a waiting list for 2017, so if you live in a drafty house, apartment, or mobile home, these panels can save you A LOT of money in heating expenses each winter. Please call 778-5048 to inquire about signing up for free window panels. If you qualify for LIHEAP you are eligible for 6 free panels, but you can also help make your own windows at a very reasonable cost.
For 2017, workshops will be held in the basement of Henderson Memorial Baptist Church on Saturdays starting September 30, 2017 through December 9, 2107 and run from 9am-1pm with a potluck lunch.
United Way wishes to recognize Susan and Fritz Onion Component Fund of the Maine Community Foundation for their generous financial support of the Community Energy Challenge initiative.
