Neighborhood: Hazelwood, Wilkinsburg
To celebrate the holiday season, ReEnergize Pgh collaborated with PennFuture and Peoples Gas to launch Energy Carolers.
50 Energy Carolers from both Hazelwood and Wilkinsburg were selected to receive special training on community outreach, and low- to no-cost techniques and technologies to reduce energy waste. Together they distributed 150 bags of energy saving gadgets to each set of neighborhood residents.
Then the participants went door-to-door in their communities in order to bring free home energy efficiency kits for their neighbors.
