A huge thank you to Acushnet Selectman David Wojnar for inviting the Energy Challenge to his neighborhood for a morning of canvassing!
Following the Energy Challenge presentation to the Alternative Energy Committee in Acushnet, Selectman Wojnar ‘took the Challenge’ to see what it is all about. Since that time, he has already scheduled & received a no-cost home energy assessment through Next Step Living and Mass Save, as well as made a plan to get follow-up weatherization work done on his home!
Selectman Wojnar invited us to join him for a morning canvass in Acushnet, to share his experience with his neighbors, and alert them to this opportunity to save a little money on home energy costs while preparing their homes for the winter.
So it was that on Wednesday we set out from Ludlow Street in Acushnet–the Selectman, Marisa Antolino from Next Step Living, BCC student and incredible Energy Challenge intern Helder Lobo, and I–to knock on neighborhood doors and introduce the Energy Challenge! We were met with pleasant greetings, dogs of all shapes and sizes, and quite a few positive responses.
Better still, the Energy Challenge reached 500 participants during the canvass. Not bad for a Wednesday morning!! We are looking forward to returning to Acushnet for the next event.
