The Neighborhood Energy Connection (NEC) is offering a FREE workshop on saving energy and money in your home.
Tuesday, May 25 at 7 - 8:30 p.m.*
Central High School auditorium
275 Lexington Pkwy N, St. Paul
Workshop attendees can sign-up for a home visit from the Home Energy Squad with up to $400 dollars worth of goods and services for only a for only a $30 co-pay. The Home Energy Squad will visit your home and recommend several energy-saving measures. You choose which improvements to make, and the Squad will install them--on the spot! Choose among exterior door weather stripping, programmable thermostats, compact fluorescent lighting, water-saving shower heads and faucet aerators, insulating water heater blankets, and more.
Make sure you ask for a blower-door test to determine how weather-tight your home is and to find out where your biggest air leaks are (this test is included in the $30 co-pay, but you have to ask for it).
Most of our feedback about the program has been very positive, but we missed a lot of neighbors in Hamline-Midway so another workshop has been arranged. Most participants are expected to save over $100 a year on energy just based on the materials we’re installing.
