Are you interested in reducing the energy you use to heat your home and power your appliances? Do you want to shave a little (or a lot) off your energy bills and need some help getting started? Are you interested in getting a home energy audit and need to find a skilled professional auditor?

 

A Button Up, NH workshop, sponsored by G.A.L.A. and the Wolfeboro Public Library, will be held Thursday, November 18 at 7pm at the Wolfeboro Public Library. Topics at the workshop will include cost effective strategies and projects for saving money and energy. Participants will learn simple weatherization they can do themselves as well as the long term benefits of more extensive energy retrofits done by a professional. Information about finding technical and financial resources will also be presented.

 

The workshop will be taught by Gil Richardson, a BPI and HERS certified energy auditor. Gil has evaluated more than a hundred homes in NH, VT, and CT, helping homeowners and builders understand better how their buildings perform and how to make them perform better. He is a co-founder of the NH Sustainable Energy Association and a member of the Residential Energy Performance Association.

 

Button Up, NH workshops are being presented around the state over the next several months courtesy of Clean Air-Cool Planet/New England Carbon Challenge with funding from the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Fund of the NH Public Utilities Commission, the NH Charitable Foundation, Jane’s Trust and other regional partners. The workshop is free and open to the public. For more information visit www.myenergyplan.net.
