David Lindsey, Weatherization Program Director

The Weatherization Program Staff, as of June 30, 2023, are working to close out our fiscal year 2022/23. The Weatherization Program (WX) will close out the fiscal year with the following final number of clients who have received services during the 2022/23 program year; 24 jobs completed, 29 deferrals, 4 cancellations. The Weatherization Program is fully staffed with an in-house crew, and we are utilizing contractors to perform HVAC and Electrical work that we must perform to the dwellings receiving services. We look forward to the future of the new contract year of CKCAC’s Weatherization Program to progress and better serve our 8-county service area.

Our goal with weatherization is to continue to reduce energy waste and assure the health and safety of each client we serve through testing consisting of aliening air and thermal boundaries, pressure diagnostics, heating system diagnostics, indoor air quality, and base load energy consumption diagnostics.

Central Kentucky Community Action Council Weatherization program is fully staffed with a highly trained support and technical staff consisting of Denny Baxter-Dwelling Needs Evaluator EA/QCI, Josh Mattingly-Crew Leader, Mike Burden-Retrofit Installer, Seth Riggs-Retrofit Installer and Barbara Garrett-Weatherization Administrative Support Specialist. We would like to say a huge thank you to all WX staff for their dedication to improving the quality of work and the dedication to ensure the health and safety of all the clients we serve.

Central Kentucky Community Action Council has leveraged funds from utilities to expand the reach of the Weatherization Assistance Program. This year we are leveraging funding from DOE, DOE BIL, LIHEAP, East Kentucky Power, Kentucky Utilities, and Louisville Gas& Electric.
