Bellingham is moving up the leaderboard in its race against 50 other communities for the Georgetown University Energy Prize.

In January, Mayor Kellie Linville declared 2016 to be “Energy Year,” an announcement certainly linked to Bellingham’s strong chance to save more energy than any of the other semi-finalists and claim the $5 million grand prize.

Efforts in Bellingham have sprung from where homeowners and business owners can schedule an energy usage assesment and enter for a chance to win a free month of utilities.

The goal is that every household in Bellingham would take some action to improve their energy efficiency. And the city is doing its part too, switching streetlights to LEDs and improving efficiency in many school buildings.
