FUNDS AT WORK!

Medford Wind Turbine

Funds raised by Medford homes participation in  GreenUp have helped pay for a small wind turbine, to be erected and commissioned in the fall of 2008.  Although the turbine will pay for itself through energy savings, GreenUp funds are being used to help with the up-front construction costs.
