NCV Announcements

December 2010- Brandeis University Chapter welcomes three new E-board leadership team members! Congratulations to our new Social Media Chair: Freshman Joey Morris, Treasurer: Freshman Elisha Katz and Secretary: Sophomore Chris Shin.

December 2010- The first NCV/SEA Weatherization Barnraising in partnership with Waltham’s WATCH was a huge success! Over 30 volunteers from Brandeis University and the Waltham area pitched in to reduce a local resident’s energy bill by $900 per year by cutting 40% of the overall air leakage and replacing 30 regular lightbulbs with CFLs.

Quick tip: Low energy light bulbs use less than 20% of the energy of a conventional light bulb, and can last up to 15 times longer!
