SBHA going green

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The South Bend Housing Authority is going green.

The change is part of a new energy initiative for Indiana public housing.

More than 300 South Bend homes are part of the new project.

They will be assessed for energy efficiency, all to help improve conditions, and help those living their cut back on their energy costs.

"With all the work that we are doing, and the things we identify and especially if they need insulation in the attic," said Bob Nuss, managing director of Energizing Indiana. "It's nothing unheard of to see 20, 25, 30 percent savings on the bill."

Inspectors will look at replacing traditional light bulbs with energy-efficient bulbs, sealing doors and insulating water pipes and tanks.

All of the work will be done at no cost to the housing authority or its residents.
