HEAT is a project focused on creating more energy efficient homes in the neighborhood surrounding the University of Pittsburgh’s campus. We received funding to distribute pipe insulation, faucet aerator, shower head, window and door insulation, light bulbs, and power strips. This project consisted of outreach at the local food pantry where sessions were held to teach community members the benefits of creating a more energy efficient home. The sessions were held on Tuesdays and Fridays where we were able to distribute energy efficient items. During these sessions there was also an educational aspect where people learned about the economic and environmental benefits.
