Thirteen Neighborhoods Applied for Retrofit Program

February 3, 2010 at 5:45 pm 2 comments

Thirteen Durham neighborhoods submitted applications for first-round consideration for the City of Durham Neighborhood Energy Retrofit program. Applications were submitted by Duke Park, East Durham, Hillside, Lochaven, Morehead/West End, Northgate Park, Old North Durham, Parkwood & Frenchman’s Creek, River Forest, Trinity Park, Tuscaloosa Lakewood, Watts Hillandale, and Woodcroft & Woodlake.

If you live in one of these areas, you too can volunteer with your neighbors to promote energy efficiency in your neighborhood. These neighborhoods represent a wide swath of Durham, including the southern- and northern-most portions of the city, historic central city neighborhoods, as well as neighborhoods on the perimeter of downtown. Some neighborhoods recruited more than the requisite 4 volunteers, and several recruited many more than that.

The neighborhood volunteers are community builders who want to learn energy saving techniques and share these techniques with others in their neighborhoods. As Neighborhood Energy Retrofit Program participants, volunteers will meet more of their neighbors through door to door outreach, conduct presentations where they teach neighbors energy saving techniques, help neighbors complete low cost no cost retrofit activities, and establish long term relationships with their neighbors.

Entry filed under: Neighborhood Energy Retrofit Program (NERP).

    I have heard Progress Energy offers a rebate for Energy Efficiency projects like windows replacement. Does Duke Energy or PSNC offer such a program? Does the city, state or feds?
