Mercury Excelum Donates Windows for Low-Income Connecticut Home
Rebuilding Together in Hartford, Conn., with a grant from the American Petroleum Institute and donated energy-efficient windows from window manufacturer Mercury Excelum Inc., helped a low-income homeowner reduce energy use and save money during National Rebuilding Day on Saturday April 28th.
National Rebuilding Day, sponsored by Rebuilding Together Hartford, is a day when more than 500 volunteers gather throughout the city to provide home repair, accessibility modification and energy conservation services for 25 low-income Hartford homeowners.
The window replacement and other work in this specific home rebuild is part of the Energy Efficient Homes Initiative, a national partnership between Rebuilding Together and America's oil and natural gas industry that incorporates energy efficiency into home renovations for low-income homeowners nationwide.
On March 3, as part of this same Energy Efficient Homes Initiative RBT and Mercury Excelum provided ENERGY STAR®-qualified low-E windows for a Hartford homeowner. The window recipient has since stated that their electric bill dropped 50 percent after the organizations made their home.
Mercury Excelum Inc., based in East Windsor, Conn., is a local business partner who has worked with Rebuilding Together on several energy-efficient rebuilds utilizing the energy-efficient windows they manufacture.
"It is a natural fit for Mercury Excelum to support the Energy Efficient Homes Initiative. We are always pleased to work with Rebuilding Together to be able to enhance the quality of life for area homeowners in need," says Douglas Meyerson, president of Mercury Excelum.
