Last chance to participate in Hometown Rewards Program
Fairfield’s Hometown Rewards Program is coming to an end in August.
According to program organizers, the Fairfield community has met 80 percent of its Hometown Reward Program energy reduction and participation goals, and a little more help is needed to get to 100 percent.
Organizers explained there are five things a Fairfield resident can do to help:
• Submit a free pledge form indicating things he or she is willing to do or already doed to save energy.
• Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity; every hour helps.
• Schedule a free home energy assessment.
• Attend the last free Second Saturdays workshop on Aug. 10.Details will be announced later.
• Tell others about the Fairfield Hometown Rewards Program and encourage them to get involved.
Organizers are confident in community members’ support and look forward to celebrating reaching 100 percent of the goals, with a free bike-in movie and picnic Sept. 14 at the Fairfield Public Library.
Details for the event will be announced later.
Fairfield’s Hometown Rewards Program is a partnership between the city of Fairfield, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, Alliant Energy, KRUU 100.1FM, KMCD-Classic 96, Hy-Vee, COSC and the Fairfield Public Library.
If the community meets the goals of the program, Alliant Energy will help fund the installation of solar panels on the Fairfield Public Library.
