There are many small ways to save big on your energy bills this winter.
Students from the Youth Advisory Council spent part of the weekend helping a Calumet resident do just that with some winterization.
Habitat for Humanity got the project started by replacing the windows on the home and the students focused on insulating the rim joist.
Houghton Energy Efficiency Team Manager Melissa Davis explains.
The project was funded through a grant from the Keweenaw Community Foundation Youth Advisory Council.
Houghton resident Ben Lilleskov is the co-chair of the council and says he was surprised how easy the work was to do.
Houghton County continues to compete for the Georgetown Energy Prize, so all residents are encouraged to look for ways to make their homes more energy efficient.
