Green Homes Challenge Recognition 2016

Congratulations Certified Households! 
Frederick County officials and OSER staff recognized Certified Households at the 5th annual Green Homes Challenge Recognition event on Thursday, March 24, 2016 at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center.  Since Frederick County launched its Green Homes Challenge in January 2011, more than 500 households have met one or more of the three Green Homes Challenges: Be a Power Saver, Be a Green Leader, or Be a Renewable Star.  Frederick County Council Members Bud Otis and Tony Chmelik and City of Frederick Mayor Randy McClement, City of Frederick Alderman Kelly Russell and Myersville Mayor Wayne S. Creadick were in attendance and spoke in support of the challenge.

Live music was provided by “The Bad Hand Band”, and 26 prizes from event sponsors were awarded to Challenge participants.   Some of the prizes included an Aeroseal Duct Sealing valued at $1,950 from Atlas Energy Solutions, a $1,000 Home Improvement Project Certificate from Building Diagnostics and Energy Retrofits, Inc. and a $1,000 discount on a Solar Installation from Green Brilliance and gift cards and gift baskets from local businesses like Common Market, Stadler Nurseries, Savage Soaps and Terressentials.  Thank you to all of our sponsors!
