Would you like to learn how to make your own and others’ homes more comfortable while reducing climate pollution and saving money on energy bills?
Please join the Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions at Unitarian Universalist Church in Reston for an energy justice workshop! Jill Barker and Eric Goplerud of Arlington Energy Masters will teach participants how to perform simple upgrades to achieve energy and water conservation. After reminding ourselves where our energy comes from and why it matters, this hands-on workshop will train participants of all skill levels to confidently undertake energy upgrades, including:
seal air leaks around doors, windows, and electrical switch plates with foam adhesive and caulk
install gaskets behind light switch and electrical outlet plates
install faucet aerators and low-flow shower heads
replace traditional incandescent light bulbs with more efficient, long-lasting LEDs
install flow restrictors in toilets
provide energy efficiency and water conservation education and outreach in schools, to community groups, and to individual residents and families in affordable housing apartments
The class will equip participants to improve their own homes and to volunteer with Rebuilding Together to help low income, elderly and disabled neighbors in Northern Virginia to reduce their energy bills, cut wasted energy, and have more comfortable homes.
Time: 11:45 AM - 1:45 PM
Location: Unitarian Universalist Church in Reston. Workshop will be held in the sanctuary.
Age: This class is open to ages 13+
