The Town of Bristol partnered with SmartPower and National Grid to assist Bristol residents in finding ways to reduce energy use in their homes. This not only cut down on carbon dioxide emissions and created a healthier environment, it also reduces the energy bill of residents.
For acquiring 476 sign-ups, the Town of Bristol received a grant for $5000 to apply toward an energy efficient project in a public building.
