Through our adult religious education forum series, The Green Team plans to facilitate discussions about home energy conservation, water conservation, and incentives to assist in paying for any upgrades. The anticipated outcomes of this forum is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the amount of energy consumed, and to conserve water in our drought-prone area by reducing the amount of household water consumed.

The energy efficiency discussion will include incremental no/low cost, moderate cost and major investment measures that a homeowner can take to reduce their energy consumption and save money in the process. The subject matter will cover lighting, HVAC systems, shading and passive solar techniques, insulation, appliances and zero net-energy homes.

The water conservation discussion will cover high efficiency plumbing fixtures, tankless water heaters, low water usage appliances and modifying family habits. We will also cover drought tolerant plant species, irrigation efficiency and conversion of lawns to zero-scaping.
