Dozens Celebrate New "Green" House in Charlottesville

June 23, 2009

It's a celebration of a new, environmentally-friendly era for a local home.

Dozens of people gathered at a "green" house on Brown Street in Charlottesville.

5th District Representative Tom Perriello was on hand to talk about several improvements that made this home more environmentally efficient.

They include a new water heater that only heats water when someone needs it, and sealing cracks that allow cold air in.

The owner of the home worked with the Quality Community Council in Charlottesville to get the work done for free.

"I'm blessed. I'm blessed, and I would like to see other homeowners get the same thing. I hope this is the start of something really big," said Ingrid Feggans

The Chairwoman of the White House Council on Environmental Quality was on hand to talk about ways to create clean energy jobs.
