What’s in that bag? Window Plastic!

With the ReEnergize Pgh Energy Efficiency Challenge swinging into full gear, here’s an insider’s look at what participants are working with.


Every household that signs up to be a part of the competition receives a ReEnergize Pgh Energy Efficiency toolkit! Our Ambassadors have been hard at work getting these useful tools into the hands of Homewood, Hazelwood and Millville residents. This week, we’ve looked inside the Energy Efficiency toolkits and discovered the energy saving power of shower timers, weather stripping, caulk and outlet caps & covers!

Window plastic is an easy, cost effective way to insulate windows in cold weather.


ReEnergize Pgh window plastic includes everything you need to cover 4 windows. Double sided adhesive tape, directions, and 4 sheets of shrink fit plastic!
