The Maine-based nonprofit WindowDressers brings community volunteers of all economic and social situations together to improve the warmth and comfort of interior spaces, lower heating costs, and reduce carbon dioxide pollution by producing low-cost insulating window inserts that function as custom, interior-mounted storm windows. Their staff supplies, trains, and supports teams of community volunteers as they build affordable, insulating window inserts at local Community Builds.
Since 2020, Town Energy Committees in the Upper Valley have enlisted hundreds of volunteers and worked with WindowDressers to hold Community Builds that supply town residents with inserts. Fall of 2021 saw Community builds for Bradford, Norwich/Hanover, and Thetford/Strafford; and six to 10 towns are expected to hold Builds in 2022.
