Bijal’s January Update


January was an interesting month, to say the least. I drove through snow, thick fog, and floods to attend meetings in Westport and Lebanon. Gotta love CT!

Early on in the month, I met with a volunteer of the Lebanon Historical Society (which placed first in Lebanon’s Community Groups Rewards Program) to plan an event. We are hosting an after-school birthday party…for Dr. Seuss! We will read the Lorax and make Cat-in-the-Hat light bulbs to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday and energy efficiency!

In Westport, we are hosting a workshop on home energy upgrades during “Minds in Motion,” an enrichment program for students and adults. I can’t wait to see what “Minds in Motion” has in store for Westport and the Energy Challenge!

My favorite part of January was attending my first workshop in Wethersfield. While watching this workshop and attending trainings on deeper energy savings, I have learned a ton about energy upgrades and can’t wait to give advice to my own parents. I’m looking forward to visiting Wesson Energy this Friday to learn more!
