As the weather gets colder, people are getting their houses 'weatherized.'
Black Hills Power Company and volunteers have spent the last few days going to different neighborhoods to help seal doors, put in window films, put on outlet covers, and other changes to eliminate drafts and prepare for winter weather.
This morning a crew of around 20 worked in Black Hawk.
Keith Gadey, energy service supervisor, says the volunteer work is being done on specific homes. "Mainly lower income homes, elderly homes, and some handicapped folks that maybe couldn't do a lot of these efforts on their own. So we try and help them out," said Gadey.
Black Hills Power has been offering this free service for the past five to six years.
