Governor Joe Manchin III Proclaims Weatherization Day in West Virginia


Governor Joe Manchin III announced that Tuesday, October 30, 2007 will be known as Weatherization Day in the Mountain State. The dedication of this day as Weatherization Day celebrates the accomplishments of the Weatherization Assistance Program, an excellent federal, state, and local partnership.

Today as a nation, we are faced with a new challenge to demonstrate resolve to increase our energy security and develop a domestic portfolio of diverse energy resources to meet supply and demand. Weatherization not only assists families and households working toward self-sufficiency, but also contributes more broadly to the improvements and economic progress of communities and adds to the nation's energy security.

Governor Manchin also stated that this program has helped nearly 1100 families in our state to conserve energy and reduce their costs for heating, cooling, and electricity. The money saved by reducing their energy bills can now be used by these families to pay for medicine, food, clothing and other essentials in their daily lives.
