Mayor Rybak Attends 2,000th CES home visit

From “The Mayor Blog”:

As great as it was to participate in the 2,000th home energy audit since the program began last year in 28 pilot neighborhoods, we also announced today that the program will be soon available citywide and will serve 4,000 more households. So if you’ve taken advantage of Community Energy Services already, congratulations; if you’re in a neighborhood that’s currently eligible, don’t wait any longer; and if you live in another neighborhood, contact your neighborhood organization today and encourage them to sign up for Community Energy Services today so that you can start taking advantage of it.

Thank you, Mayor Rybak, for blogging about our program!

“There’s no reason for anybody not do it,” she said frankly.
