Home Energy and Water Efficiency Forum
February 10, 2019 - 12:30 pm
Learn how to save money while reducing your carbon footprint!
Energy consumed in buildings is one of the largest generators of greenhouse gases. But in the past few years technology and best design practices have evolved into the emerging Zero Net Energy movement. Learn how you can cut your home energy consumption with no/low cost, medium and cutting edge measures.
We will also discuss how to conserve our precious treated water, which takes tremendous energy to treat and deliver to your home. Learn about programs to help you pay for water efficiency upgrades and where to find drought tolerant landscaping plants.
The forum will be guided by Tom Piette, who is a LEED accredited architect and was part of Governor Brown’s “Green Team” while working at the State of California. Snacks will be provided.
