New ‘Energy Connection’ Website Launch and First of Four “Energy Roadshows” Set for Wednesday, Oct. 30

Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich, County Councilmember Tom Hucker, Director of the Department of Environmental Protection Adam Ortiz and Director of the Montgomery County Public Libraries Anita Vassallo are scheduled to help close out October as Energy Action Month by formally announcing the launch of the County’s new “Energy Connection” website. The website is a comprehensive network providing information on the benefits of energy efficiency, availability of programs and opportunities for assistance. It will help residents keep more money in their pockets by reducing the amount of energy they use in their homes.

The website will be launched at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 30, at the Rockville Memorial Library. It will proceed the first of four “Energy Roadshows” the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will host over the next few weeks. Energy Roadshows are open-house-style events to learn about all things energy, including how to make homes more comfortable year-round, various options for switching to renewable energy and how to spot energy scams.

The Rockville Memorial Library is located at 21 Maryland Ave. in Rockville Town Center.

The Energy Connection website is a collection of information compiled by Montgomery County DEP and other partner organizations. To learn more about the Montgomery Energy Connection website, visit montgomeryenergyconnection.org.
