Residents of Canaan, Enfield, and six New London-area towns will be eligible for discounts on home insulation and weatherproofing projects this year.

The program, called Weatherize, is run by the Upper Valley non-profit Vital Communities, one of a number of New Hampshire groups looking to encourage homeowners to seal up drafty, inefficient homes.

Eligible residents have access to a much discounted energy audit, plus connections to local contractors who have signed up to help with the program and information on rebates for the work.

Vital Communities is holding kick-off events this Saturday at Mascoma Valley Regional High School and next weekend in New London.
