Bringing Climate Action Home: An Energy Efficiency and Home Improvement Fair
Are you interested in improving the energy efficiency of your home?
This free event will take place at the Building Performance Center – a nationally recognized training facility for contractors and a hub for weatherization services in Whatcom, Skagit, Island, and San Juan counties. Individuals will learn the basics of home performance and energy efficiency from on-hand local energy professionals and contractors. Participants will get a close-up look at how diagnostic tools are used during an energy audit, tour the training test houses, learn about services offered by Puget Sound Energy and Cascade Natural Gas, and get an infrared picture taken of themselves! Local contractors will be available to explain their services and offer special promotions.
