February 6, 2017
Wayside Food Programs was recognized by the Efficiency Maine Trust at their annual symposium for their efforts in promoting energy efficiency and alternative energy systems to lower the cost and environmental impacts of energy in Maine. For the past three years, Wayside has collaborated with Efficiency Maine to distribute energy efficient lightbulbs to clients and food pantry partners free of cost. The LED lightbulbs distributed through Efficiency Maine's Residential Programs are 83% more efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs. The energy savings of the LED bulbs translates to financial savings for the low-income households that Wayside and their partners serve.
