The 2014 BodySense Earth Day Grant was awarded to a local group committed to reducing energy consumption. An offshoot of Lake Chatuge Greenfaith Team, a NCIPL Regional Partner, the volunteers visits the homes of people who face high energy bills and need information and assistance reducing their usage, saving them money and saving valuable natural resources. The assessment identifies simple energy saving solutions such as efficient lighting, weather stripping, changing water heater temperatures, adding insulation and more. Volunteers provide the service at no cost and supplies are provided through donations.
“The BodySense grant will be used to purchase supplies which will be a help to those feeling the stress of high energy bills”, Brad Rouse explained. “Our goal is to identify the folks that need help and provide them with support in making changes”.
Founded on the idea that helping people save energy both protects God’s creation and serves God’s people, Energy Saving Volunteers is taking action in our community.
