The PEACE, Inc. Weatherization program is very beneficial to our community. The homes and apartments we insulate and make energy efficient improve the quality of life for the residents and decreases their utility costs.
Weatherization promotes energy conservation, making us less dependent on foreign oil. In addition, Weatherization increases the demand for the manufacturers and suppliers of windows, insulation, furnaces and energy efficient appliances.
Since February 2012, PEACE, Inc. has weatherized 353 buildings and completed over 1,400 units. We will exceed our production goal for this year by 260 units.
Senator Gillibrand and Congressman Maffei urge President Obama to fund the program.
