Christiansburg Organization Wins Two Awards
Christiansburg-based Community Housing Partners has been recognized for two first-place energy efficiency awards. The Virginia Energy Efficiency Council has recognized Community Housing Partners for its work on the Appalachian Power Low-Income Weatherization Program and the low-income Apartments at Kingsridge in Richmond.
Energy efficiency helps businesses, governments, homeowners and schools save money on energy bills while reducing energy consumption, all while stimulating job growth and our economy.
The fourth annual Virginia Energy Efficiency Leadership Awards, presented by the Virginia Energy Efficiency Council, recognized innovative projects and programs across the Commonwealth doing just that.
“Energy efficiency is among the most cost-effective and quickest ways to address climate change while also progressing economic fairness by cutting utility bills through reduced energy usage,” Chelsea Harnish, executive director of VAEEC, said. “The people honored by these awards are leading the charge towards a promising clean energy future.”
