Only 11 other states were similarly singled out. The recognition came primarily through the work of the state Department of Human Services’ Weatherization Assistance Program – a national leader and one that has weatherized close to 11,000 homes since July 2009. For that, Governor Phil Bredesen has proclaimed Saturday, October 30th as Weatherization Day in Tennessee to promote the economic and environmental benefits of this home energy efficiency program.
