Oakland/Piedmont Home Energy Forum

Posted by Len Gilbert on January 25, 2012

Thanks to the Rockridge Community Planning Council I heard about this upcoming forum co-sponsored by both Oakland and Piedmont. See below for details from the event listing. Registration and event information are available at www.oakland-piedmontenergyforum.eventbrite.com.

 

The Surprising Facts About Your Home Energy Use

 Did you know?

  • You may be eligible for up to $4,000 in rebates from PG&E when you make your home more energy efficient.
  • The average home loses approximately 40% of its energy through leaks
  • Indoor air quality is 2-5x worse than outdoor air quality, according to the EPA
  • The average home creates more air pollution than the average car 

Learn how easy it is to get thousands of dollars back on home improvements that will save money, save energy, and make your home more comfortable

Participating Contractors who are trained and ready to work on your home will be there to answer your questions, and you’ll also hear from a Rockridge homeowner who has been through the process.

Upgrades can also help local schools! When you sign up for an energy upgrade, participating schools can receive $100, and a chance to earn an additional $5,000 in May 2012. It’s not too late to get your school involved! See www.energizefortheprize.org for more information.

Event Co-Sponsors: City of Oakland, City of Piedmont, Greening Oakland Homes
