At the last Conversation, Dwight deCoster, Program director at Champlain Valley Weatherization Service, outlined their full-service approach to creating safe, warm, healthy and efficient homes for low-income Vermonters. A brief summary is here.

We also compiled a guide to weatherization resources in and around Burlington, starting with a 1st-call list to use when you don’t know where to start. It’s here.

Thanks for helping create a just, inclusive and renewable energy future for Burlington.,
