Recap of Green Home Challenge Recognition Event

Recap of Green Home Challenge Recognition Event

The Frederick County Department of Sustainability recently held a recognition event at the Delaplaine Visual Art Education Center to celebrate another successfully completed power savers retrofit program.  

The event was attended by many of the participants in the 2013-2014 Power Savers Program as well as past green homes challenge participants.  Frederick Country employees were able to provide a thorough recap of the program, and provide data on how much energy consumption was reduced though the efforts of the Green homes challenge participants. Elected officials such as Myersville Mayor Wayne S. Creadick, Jr. were also on hand to show their appreciation for the green homes challenge, and share their own stories about becoming more energy efficient homeowners.

The two owners of Atlas Home Energy, Matt Sera and Mike Uecker along with all the auditors on staff, were on hand for this event. It was great to be able to talk to homeowners who had received audits and retrofits from Atlas staff, and to receive feedback on the improvements that were implemented. All certified Power SaversGreen Leaders, and Renewable Stars at this event were eligible for a variety of prizes provided by the sponsors of the event. Atlas Home Energy was thrilled to be able to donate a free AEROSEAL duct sealing which was awarded to Mr. Dave Carney of Mount Airy.  

Atlas Home Energy encourages all eligible customers to apply for participation in future power savers programs, and to join the Green Home Challenge! The green homes challenge is a program put on by the Frederick County Office of Sustainability and Environmental Resources which encouranges people to save energy in their home, and to encourage Frederick county residents to be leaders on energy efficiency in the community.
