The Hartford's in Peru, Maine

It’s funny how what you do everyday can all of the sudden be thrust into a national spotlight. We make our living weatherizing houses making them warmer, more comfortable, and more energy efficient. I read an article in the NY Times and here was a neighbor, the Hartford’s, that couldn’t pay their heating bill and a local businessman, Ike Libby, having to make impossible decisions. The obvious short-term fix was to fill the Hartford’s tank with oil so they could heat their house, but they clearly needed a long-term fix to reduce the amount of oil they use in order to be able to afford to heat their house for years to come.  I thought, that’s where we come in.
