26 plug-ins were installed this winter for residents' use. Once funding from the state was
secured, Municipal staff from Facilities & Maintenance ensured that the project was completed
quickly and efficiently in time for the winter season. The plug-ins will provide for an increased
level of safety and well-being for the residents who live at the center as well as being in line with
the Municipality's campaign to "Plug at 20"-to reduce engine wear and air pollution by
substantially reducing start-up emissions and fuel consumption.
