The Charlotte Energy Shelf
Weatherization and Weatherproofing
Weatherization is generally regarded as the easiest, lowest-hanging-fruit place to start to button up your home and/or place of work. By tightening up the buildings you occupy with insulation and air sealing you make them more comfortable, healthier, and warmer in winter and cooler in summer, all while reducing your utility bills! Investing in weatherization reduces both costs and emissions year over year. Also, reducing your demand for imported fossil fuels increases Vermont's energy independence and keeps dollars closer to home. A win-win-win for climate action!
Materials are available as part of the Charlotte Food Shelf and are free of charge for lower-income Charlotters.
