On Monday, June 11th of 2018, NCBPA conducted a home energy efficiency workshop at Sierra Nevada in Mills River to educate local homeowners and renters on what steps they can take to lower their energy usage and how they’ll benefit from doing so.
Hosted by Sierra Nevada’s Sustainability Coordinator Leah Cooper, the workshop also included NCBPA member companies Blue Horizons Project and Conservation Pros as exhibitors. During the workshop, NCBPA staff educated attendees on the sources of energy in homes, common places to save energy and how consumer behavior can add up to additional energy and monetary savings. Attendees learned about the most impactful home energy improvements, how moisture control and energy efficiency work together, and what DIYers can do on their own versus needing help from a contractor.
After the workshop, staff from NCBPA, Blue Horizons Project and Conservation Pros (as well as other NCBPA members!) answered attendee questions. The workshop was conducted using resources created by Duke University’s Carbon Offsets Initiative (DCOI) and marketed through NCBPA’s consumer energy efficiency website www.HomeEnergyNC.org.
This workshop is available to organizations, municipalities and companies interested in educating their employees or customers about how to save energy. More information on the workshop can be found at http://homeenergync.org/roles/employers/.
NCBPA would like to thank Sierra Nevada, Blue Horizons Project and Conservation Pros for participating in the workshop!
