Frontier Housing participates in Earth Day
This spring, Frontier Housing is using its 2007 Earth Day Change A Light $350 mini-grant to educate consumers about the environmental and cost benefits of energy-efficient lighting. The grant was awarded by the Governor’s Office of Energy Policy (GOEP) to 37 qualifying organizations state-wide.

If every household in Rowan County and the nation replaced just one incandescent light bulb with an ENERGY STAR compact fluorescent bulb (CFL), we would save enough energy to light more than 2.5 million homes for a year and prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of nearly 800,000 cars.
