The SouthCoast Energy Challenge officially reached 1% of our total goal of 35,000 participants last Wednesday, August 31!! Helder and I set off on foot from the Dartmouth Town Hall for some light canvassing of the surrounding streets. Two neighboring roads actually still had their power out from Hurricane Irene. Despite, or perhaps inspired by the outage, the neighborhood was collectively strongly in favor of energy efficiency in general and Challenge goals in particular! Everyone who ‘Took the Challenge’ that day also expressed interest in receiving a NO COST, MassSave, home energy assessment. We reached our goal of 350 registrants that afternoon, and are still celebrating! Huzzah! Thank you to everyone who has already ‘taken the Challenge’…spread the word!
