For Hometown Weekly

Capes, Colonials, and Ranches Weatherization Workshops

Needham residents can save money and energy this winter by weatherizing their homes. As the cold weather sets in, Green Needham Collaborative is offering a series of one-hour workshops addressing the unique weatherization opportunities and challenges for three common types of houses in Needham – capes, colonials and ranches. Each workshop will take place at the Needham Historical Society, 1147 Central Ave. On Wednesday, January 16 at 7 p.m., the presentation will focus on Weatherizing Capes. On Thursday, January 17, at 7 p.m. the focus will be on Weatherizing Colonials and Ranches. Each session will be led by experienced energy advisors from Next Step Living, a company which has completed 24,000 Mass Save® home energy assessments in Massachusetts. The workshops will last approximately one hour, with plenty of time for questions. All are welcome to come either night to learn more about their home’s weatherization options. Refreshments will be served.

The workshops are part of Green Needham Collaborative’s ongoing efforts to promote energy efficiency. Their goal is to encourage residents not only to have home energy assessments, but also to complete the weatherization work that will reduce energy use and utility costs.

Local Organizations

Hello everyone,

Best wishes to all for happy and healthy New Year!

I just wanted to let you know about two upcoming events sponsored by Green Needham. Below is a short write-up that you can forward as an email or use in a newsletter. Please help Green Needham spread the word.

As far as our Interfaith Environmental Network, I will organize a meeting for February or March -- I'll send a Doodle meeting organizer at some point. By then we should have an update on the sports field recycling project (and some initiatives by the new RTS director), and we can get updates on various activities, including First Parish's upcoming solar panel project.

Regards, Eleanor Rosellini
