Our impact is built to last. During a home visit, it's not uncommon to see good work that was done years ago by CEE as part of the Metropolitan Airports Commission's sound insulation program. I hope for more successful programs like these in our future! And as more and more existing homes and businesses become retrofitted and more energy efficient, I'll be interested to see how CEE's work overlaps with renewable energy resources and other clean energy interests.
CEE's work is a win-win-win for everyone. Our satisfaction rates among clients run consistently high. And by making homes more efficient, we're not only helping homeowners save money and energy, we're also helping the utility companies reach their efficiency goals and reduce the strain on their energy infrastructure.
When it comes to serving residents with practical, high-quality energy efficiency solutions, I'm proud that the Home Energy Squad program is one of the most successful programs of its kind.
