As part of our continuing Urban Sustainability Series, the JP Forum joins with the Massachusetts Municipal Association to present a 1-hour workshop on home energy saving strategies for the winter. Focusing on the simple steps to reducing the use of electricity, water and heat, this program offers a do-it-yourself approach to saving energy. Topics will include:
* Air sealing and insulation strategies to greatly reduce home energy costs
* Available rebates and grants to reduce the cost of home alterations and appliances
* Home energy audits from MassSave
* Inexpensive solutions for reducing your house’s carbon footprint including programmable thermostats, CFLs, and low-flow showerheads.
