How will you help your neighbors?
We are building several opportunities for Vermonters to consider DIY projects or a whole home weatherization. We also want to support your innovative ideas. What would convince your neighbors to set aside a weekend to do some DIY projects? How could you get them to schedule an appointment with a constractor? Let us know what you need and we'll try to help you out.
We're offering these opportunities that you can share with your neighbors:
- Free Home Energy Visits: if you sign up your town this year, any resident can sign up for a free, virtual home energy visit, while appointments are available.
- Weatherization Wednesdays: a Wedneday online series hosted by many Vermont organizations featuring trivia, Q&As, DIY-videos, and tips for weatherization.
- Regional Weatherization Trainings: Regional Planning Commissions will host custom Step Up to Button Up Webinars with special information for your communities. This is a great opportunity to combine forces and support an online activity for your neighbors.
- Button Up Fund: working with the Vermont Community Foundation, we've established a way to donate to weatherization projects for low income Vermonters. Invite your neighbors to support energy and financial security in Vermont.
