Skuldt home successfully completed.

The event ended after about five laborious hours with one more Austin family more physically comfortable in their energy efficient home as well as having a more sustainable life.  All these activities will aid in making this Austin home more energy efficient and sustainable. 

These events are used to not only make homes more energy efficient and sustainable but also as an educational tool.  Each activity had an experienced leader to lead and teach the new volunteers.  It was a team effort that enabled the Austin Green Energy Group, A Nurtured World, Green Mountain Energy, CLEAResult Consulting,  and AtticDr.com to make a difference in our community..."1 house at a time."

This event was generously sponsored by AtticDr.com, Pro Energy Consultants, and Green Mountain Energy.

You are invited to join us in making our community more energy efficient and sustainable.  If you would like to volunteer your services or resources for this type of fulfilling event, contact Austin Green Energy Group's Community Outreach Program Director - Mike Brumleve at info@AustinGreenEnergyGroup.org This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
