WISPIRG Foundation, Inc.
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
Energy consumption rose 53% in Wisconsin from 1970 to 2007. Due to insufficient community outreach capacity, many residents remain in the dark about opportunities to save money and help the environment through energy conservation. WISPIRG Foundation Energy Service Corps mobilizes college students to fill this gap, identifying individuals that can benefit from available efficiency initiatives and providing education, assessment, weatherization services to those not reached by existing capacity.
