MCEC partnered with Monroe Smart Start  to provide free energy assessments to home-based childcare facilities in Monroe County. Participating home providers received LED light bulbs, faucet aerators, outlet insulators, and weatherization to help them to reduce home energy use and save money on utility costs.13217380_10153457594497484_5670852994946729820_oPhoto credit: Monroe County Community Foundation
