October: Energy Awareness Month

Did you know that October is Energy Awareness Month?

Here in Connecticut we do!

All month long the corps worked very hard to get the word out on how to save energy in homes. Across the state the corps increased the locals’ knowledge of energy efficiency through their presentations to task force members, holding creative workshops, tabling at various events- such as farmer’s markets, and creating partnerships with community organizations.

Even Mother Nature participated! During the last week of October much of CT was without power due to an unprecedented snow storm that left trees and power lines down.
