Green award

State Representative Gail Lavielle (R-143), left, presented an official state citation to George Geller, Karen Stanley, First Selectman Bill Brennan, and Patrice Gillespie for helping Wilton achieve third place in the Neighbor to Neighbor Energy Challenge. Fourteen towns participated in the program.  Towns racked up points with the help of their residents by completing Home Energy Assessments and home energy upgrades. Wilton took a close third place in the challenge with the help from numerous community groups reaching out to residents to take part in the challenge. Westport was the top winner with Wethersfield coming in second. As a prize for its efforts, Wilton will receive an electric vehicle charging station. With Ms. Lavielle, from left, are Bryan Garcia, Connecticut Clean Energy Fund; Karen Stanley, vice president of Wilton Go Green; George Geller; First Selectman Bill Brennan; Patrice Gillespie, Clean Water Action/Clean Water Fund; and Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Commissioner Dan Esty.
