MORPC Showcases Home Energy Services at Groveport Home

October 25, 2016

To coincide with the changing seasons, MORPC recently hosted its annual Weatherization Showcase at the home of Shelly Murphy, a Groveport resident. The showcase provides the opportunity for community leaders, program funders, and the public to see MORPC’s weatherization services in action and highlights the value of these important services.

Many officials and representatives attended the event, including MORPC Board Chair Matt Greeson, Groveport City Administrator Marsha Hall, Madison Township Trustee Edward Dildine, Columbia Gas WarmChoice Team Leader Adrian Andrews, AEP Ohio Community Assistance Program Manager Debbie Reed, and the Ohio Development Services Agency Office of Community Assistance Deputy Chief Randall Hunt.

Hunt presented MORPC with a proclamation on behalf of Ohio Governor John Kasich for its continued work in energy efficiency.

At the showcase, stations were set up throughout the home highlighting the new furnace and hot-water tank, and demonstrating the insulation process, as well as devices such as an infrared thermography camera and a blower door. These weatherization services are free for income-eligible residents in Franklin County thanks to funding from Columbus Gas of Ohio, American Electric Power Ohio, and Ohio Development Services Agency.

The Showcase was also featured on Fox 28’s Good Day Market Place:
