This summer, the Monroe County Energy Challenge is providing free or low cost attic insulation and air sealing thanks to a generous grant from Vectren Energy! In the first 2 weeks of the program we insulated 10 Monroe county homes and reduced participants utility bills by a combined $3,000 this year! This represents an accrued savings $47,588 over a 10 year period*. The program has also helped reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 27,748 lbs/year!
MCEC has partnered with AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) in order to provide this opportunity to residents in Monroe County. NCCC strengthens communities and develops leaders through direct, team-based national and community service.
If you are interested in participating, please call (812) 349-3558 or e-mail MoCoEnergyChallenge@gmail.com to schedule an initial assessment. Space is limited and priority will be given to low-income households. This can save residents up to $600/year on utility bills and up to $1,400 in contractor fees. This is a great opportunity to save money and make your home more comfortable at the same time!
