Event description

Description

This workshop covers how to improve the energy efficiency of your home to increase comfort, save money and reduce environmental impacts.

We will discuss things you can do yourself to save energy, how to obtain rebates and incentives that can help you cover the costs, and how to hire local professionals to support you on bigger jobs. The workshop includes an introduction to solar energy and how to pay for it.

This workshop is geared toward existing homes with the goal of making energy efficiency accessible for everyone, including those on a limited budget.

The event is free and open to the public up to the room capacity of 40 guests. Please reserve your free ticket via Eventbrite to save your space.

The workshop is hosted by Blue Horizons Project and taught by Green Built Alliance Executive Director Sam Ruark-Eastes.
