Patrick-Murray Administration celebrates 10,000 homes weatherized through Recovery Act
The Patrick-Murray Administration celebrated a major milestone, with 10,000 homes now weatherized through the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act's Weatherization Assistance Program, which is creating jobs, growing businesses and saving money and energy for thousands of Massachusetts residents. Secretary of Administration & Finance Jay Gonzalez today joined Congressman John Tierney and local officials at the home of Stephanie East, a single mother of two, whose home will be weatherized by local contractor John Call through Action, Inc., a non-profit community action agency serving the North Shore. The state's Recovery Act Weatherization Assistance Program includes $125 million in funding over three years that will result in approximately 20,000 weatherized units upon completion. The average energy savings per Recovery Act-weatherized home is 35 percent, or $700 per home annually for fuel oil, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
