About the Challenge: Ninety-eight (98) households of friends, neighbors and colleagues competed on twelve teams in the Energize Maplewood! Team Energy Challenge. The team that saves the most energy and scores the most points between January 1 and May 31, 2016 will earn the title "biggest energy losers" and the grand prize - $500 for the winning team! Along the way, participants had the opportunity to win monthly prizes and attend family-friendly, educational events. The goal:
Save energy and money
Create a more comfortable, healthy home
Fix home problems
Reduce carbon footprint and help the environment
The Challenge was focused on "teams" so participants wouldn't have to learn about energy saving solutions on their own. Team members lean on each other and team captains for support, information, inspiration, and fun.
