Over the next 3 years, Wakulla County will get $1.7 million in federal stimulus money to weatherize about 200 homes. It's part of the Weatherization Assistance program aimed at helping low income families save money on their energy bill.
Jessica Langston is a single mother of three and says having her home weatherized will save her at least $200.00 a month. "They've been doing an amazing job. They've helped me out a lot. I know in the long run it'll really show on my bills and everything, and a little bit more money in the pocket, because all I do is work. That's all I can do to pay my bills." said Langston.
Workers patched her A/C leaks, sealed holes in walls, floors, and ceilings, insulated the roof, and tinted windows.
