Help your neighbors use less energy to heat and cool their homes.
Thank you for spreading the word about opportunities to save money and stay cozy. You're building energy security in Vermont and working toward meeting our emissions goals.
Vermonters are most likely to prioritize a Button Up project when they hear about it from their neighbors. You can share both the opportunity to start saving immediately with a DIY project, and the value of a whole home weatherization project.
Here are some suggestions:
Post to Front Porch Forum
Below is a sample post you could adapt for Front Porch Forum. You could also post details about specific upcoming events.
