This spring, the Monroe County Energy Challenge is providing free or low cost attic insulation and air sealing thanks to a generous grant from Vectren Energy! The program prioritizes low income families in Monroe County. In the first 3 weeks of the program our NCCC Americorps team insulated 8 Monroe County homes, reducing participants utility bills by a combined $43,186 over the next 10 years. The program has also helped reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 42,856 lbs/year!
In additional to their phenomenal contribution to the Challenge, the NCCC team has also taught over 70 local 2nd grade students about energy conservation and renewable energy resources through the MCEC Solar, Wind and Watts Roadshow.If you are interested in having your home insulated, please call (812) 349-3558 or e-mail MoCoEnergyChallenge@gmail.comto schedule an initial assessment. MCEC will insulate a limited number of homes and we recommend calling to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. This can save you up to $600/year on utility bills and up to $1,400 in contractor fees. This is a great opportunity to save moneyand make your home more comfortable at the same time!MCEC has partnered with AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) in order to provide this opportunity to residents in Monroe County.
