Woodbridge Energy Challenge

The Woodbridge Energy Challenge is focused on helping residents make their homes more energy efficient. The Ad Hoc Energy Advisory Task Force has set a goal of completing 150 Home Energy Solutions assessments by December 2015. Home Energy Solutions assessments are energy check-ups for your home. These assessments cost $99 and may include new free energy-efficient lighting, low-flow showerheads and the sealing of drafts and air leaks. Residents will also receive written recommendations on further energy-saving measures. The Town’s two selected Home Energy Solutions vendors—New England Conservation Services and New England Smart Energy—have already completed 43 home energy assessments. The assessments result in an estimated $200 in yearly energy savings per home. The vendors are donating $25 to the Woodbridge Food and Fuel Fund for each energy audit, and offering discounts on insulation as well. A progress sign in front of Town Hall will track the number of assessments completed in Woodbridge homes.

22ND ANNUAL HOLIDAY FAIR

The time has come to start preparing for the Woodbridge Senior Center Annual Holiday Fair on Saturday, November 7th. This will be our 22nd year, and each year the fair has been more successful than the last. The Senior Center has been fortunate in the past to have a wonderful group of volunteers assist with the work involved in planning the fair. In order to keep the annual fair going we are organizing a planning committee , so if you can give us any help, big or small, it will be greatly appreciated. Our first meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 25th at 10:45 in the cafeteria. Please call the Woodbridge Senior Center at 203-389-3430 if you have some free time and would like to be part of this event.
