Bredesen tabs October 30th as Weatherization Day in Tennessee

 

Tennessee Department of Human ServicesNashville, TN – This year, Tennessee was recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy for its “dedication and extraordinary efforts” toward the goals of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. 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.

“In every corner of the state, citizens as well as contractors have benefitted from this program,” said DHS Commissioner Gina Lodge. “Thanks to Recovery dollars, the tireless work of DHS staff, and our partnerships with 18 local nonprofit and government agencies, we exceeded expectations. I’m honored that the Governor has proclaimed a Weatherization Day, validating those efforts.” «Read the rest of this article»
