Massachusetts Municipalities can apply for Green Community Grants from the state to help reduce energy use and costs for implementing clean energy projects in municipal buildings. The town of Windsor, MA was the recipient for a Green Community Grant in 2019 for their town offices- a circa early 1800’s former elementary school. Part of that grant was utilized for Custom Thermal Shades throughout the building.

The green committee, opting to save money on installation, opted to install the shades themselves, under the supervision of Custom Thermal Shade creator Michele Kenney.

The Windsor Selectboard and Green Committee chose to use Custom Thermal Shades’ basic fabric for most of the Town office’s shades, in the easy to open Wide Pleat Roman style. The library opted for Classic Roman Shades in Toile, with a matching gingham for the movie room.
