Cheshire Schools Win State Award For Energy Efficiency

Cheshire's public school system has earned the Municipal Difference Maker Leadership Award as part of the 2014 Power of Change Awards, which were handed out June 17.

The school district was honored for launching energy projects including lighting retrofits, a solar energy classroom and maximizing incentives received from Connecticut Light & Power. Frank Biancur, the district's maintenance foreman, accepted the award on behalf of the district during a ceremony at the State Capitol.
