Bijal’s December Update


The month of December flew by!

The past few weeks have been packed with lighting visits, events, and meetings. On December 1, I tabled with three volunteers at the Downtown Merchants Association’s Ring in the Season event in Westport. Two of the volunteers were representatives of Homes with Hope, a non-profit organization that combats homelessness. Together, we handed out 100+ cookies and stickers to the families that attended. It was a fun and festive event!

Later on in the month, I participated in the lighting caravan in Windham with several other Corps members. I worked with Erin and Jenna to change out light bulbs in five homes. I went on 12 other lighting visits throughout the month and was excited to hear that three of those families were interested in solar and wind power!

Finally, I shadowed a Home Energy Solutions assessment in Wethersfield with Kevin. We watched two technicians seal cracks, change light bulbs, replace old weatherstripping around doors, and inspect the insulation in the attic. My favorite part was using the infrared camera to find out where the attic is missing insulation. I can’t wait to do this in my home in the new year!
