Community Energy Solutions, a local non-profit organization with demonstrated success in promoting community-based sustainable energy practices, is presenting a residential energy workshop, “Zero in on Energy” in Issaquah. The free event will be held on Tuesday, February 12th, 5:30 pm to 7:00pm at the Pickering Barn,1730 10th Ave. Northwest in Issaquah. The purpose is to let people know about the best practices in home performance, so that the homeowner can achieve greater energy savings with less time and money invested. By taking an integrative approach, saving 50% or more on home energy bills while improving comfort can be simple and affordable.
The comprehensive workshop goes far beyond the modest savings of changing out incandescent light bulbs. In particular, people will learn:
- The advantages of an energy upgrade, and how taking an integrated approach will save you money and time.
- What air sealing and building envelope repair are, and why they are so effective.
- How adding insulation can have a profound impact to your home - if it is done correctly.
- That upgrading to a high efficiency heating, ventilating, and cooling system (HVAC)will take a big bite out of your energy bills.
- Why it makes dollars and sense now to install a solar energy system.
- In support of encouraging sustainable energy practices, Mayor Frisinger of the City of Issaquah will speak at the workshop’s opening. Presenting organizations include A&RSolar, Integrity Energy Systems, Puget Sound Cooperative Credit Union, Puget Sound Energy, and Vesta Home Performance.
The event is free and everyone is welcome.
