Local Living Venture Volunteer run, community-based non-profit -- organizers of year-round Rural Skills Workshops and events, the Local Living Festival (April 27, 2013!) and the upcoming Homestead Learning Community. Oh, and this Energy Extravaganza, too! Our Home Page
This event is geared to the average family and what might be attainable for their pocketbook, as well as showing how savings can be gained from conventional energy efficiency methods -- even by renters.
For instance, various no-cost and low-cost efficiency measures such as understanding “apparent temperature” and relative humidity; the use of high velocity, low flow shower heads; appliance management; phantom power; and, how to figure out the “Energy Factor” to usefully measure month-to-month usage.
An “Energy Kit”, valued at $15.00, will be given to all attendees of the NYSERDA presentation on residential energy efficiency. Emphasis will be placed in many of the workshops on rebates and incentives available to home and business owners. We hope to also include workshops on geothermal in this event.
FREE ENTRY for on-site or advance volunteers! Many opportunities are available, for a two hour time commitment, and are rewarded with free entry and good will.
