Weatherization has an important story to tell: Weatherization Works! Every day, Weatherization helps low-income families conserve energy, save money, and improve their living conditions. Weatherization measures even save lives. Combined savings for energy and non-energy benefits show Weatherization returns at $2.51 for every $1 invested.

A Public Information Campaign can help your organization tell the story of the good work that they do.
