Free energy-saving workshops in C. Oregon


How much electricity and money can you save? What is the single biggest energy user in your home? Do you need to install insulation or change your habits? How can you reduce your energy usage? What incentives are available for new appliances, lighting or other energy efficiency changes?

Discover solutions and suggestions to these and other energy efficiency questions at a series of the free seminars offered this summer throughout Pacific Power’s Oregon service area. Besides getting the low-down on energy-saving opportunities, customers also will receive the information they need to create an energy saving action plan.

The evening workshops, set for 23 cities throughout Oregon, will explore how energy works in a home and how homeowner actions can make significant impacts on energy usage.

Those attending will develop a deeper understanding of home energy use, the effects of appliances and systems on their energy bills and how simple changes can reduce an individual’s energy use and carbon footprint.

* Learn about the different types of heating and cooling equipment, which are the most energy efficient and why. Get up close to a ductless heat pump.
* See a demonstration of a water heater and its components, and learn how a leaky water heater can be a costly energy waste.
* Discover the difference between incandescent, CFL and LED lighting.

Participants also learn how to utilize Energy Trust of Oregon incentives to reduce costs, increase comfort and improve indoor air quality and discover what diagnostic testing can do for one’s home.

After attending, participants will better understand how to:
* Recognize the most cost-effective energy improvements for the home
* Save energy and improve their home’s comfort, health and safety

* Save money with Energy Trust of Oregon cash-back incentives
