Want to cut your utility bills?

Come to a Home Energy Savings Seminar at the Tolles Parsons Center on May 22nd at 1:30 PM to learn ways to reduce your energy usage and make your home more comfortable and efficient. The seminar will review available programs that help you reduce energy usage.

The Wellesley Municipal Light Plant and National Grid offer no-cost energy audits, free light bulbs and significant rebates and assistance on insulation, heating equipment and appliances. The seminar will familiarize you with the home audit process.

Please bring your oil, gas and electric bills with you.

Volunteers will help you calculate your benchmark energy rating and assist with the audit process.

This program is sponsored by the Wellesley Sustainable Energy Committee.

libraryThe Wellesley Free Library is a treasure for our community. That treasure is even more impressive these days. They recently opened the “library of things” area where library card holders can borrow non-traditional library items such as toys, games, tools, etc for up to 3 weeks. As part of the Town wide effort to reduce waste, this is a welcomed addition to the library. Items added all the time so check in frequently.ImageOne hidden gem in the “library of things” is a little easy-to-use device called the Kill-A-Watt meter. It will enable you to measure the electricity usage of electrical items in your home. Go CHECK IT OUT.
