Kathy Ruesink: Energy Leader


Kathy was nominated as an Energy Leader because of her dedication to energy reduction and her efforts to get solar panels for her church this spring.

Energy Leader Achievements:

  • During a home energy assessment she discovered that her attic required additional insulation and hired Advance Energy Solutions (AES) to install insulation and seal the attic.
  • AES is the only contractor in Monroe County who can apply for both Duke and Vectren rebates for attic insulation ($700 combined rebate). AES also offers a 10% discount in support of MCEC
  • When Kathy recently had to re-side her house she used the opportunity to install insulation in the walls, in an uninsulated space at the top of the lower level walls and in the crawl space, further reducing her use of fossil fuels to heat and cool her home.
  • At her church, she is part of a committee working toward adding solar panels to their church building this spring.

We are so proud to have such an inspiring woman in our community!
