Energy conservation means cool in the summer and warm in the winter
Cool Cities affiliate Better Building Works (Monica Rokicki-Guajardo) explained the realities of energy conservation to Roanoke College students with local examples like the gentleman in Pulaski who makes about $900/month. Last winter his electric bills
sometimes took 1/3 of his income. He was still cold. His house had no insulation.
Thanks to some great assistance programs in Southwest Virginia like the Community Alliance for Energy Efficiency (Cafe2) and their approved vendors, he won’t have to be cold next winter. See the full presentation here:Better Building Works, Sustainability
