Cold weather is just around the corner. Learn simple things you can do now to make your home or business more energy efficient and some steps you can take to lower your heating bills this winter at a free workshop sponsored by AARP Wyoming, Cheyenne Light, Fuel and Power and Habitat for Humanity. The Operation Energy Save workshop runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 10, at the Laramie County Library.
It is free and open to the public.
Get valuable information about renewable energy incentives, energy efficient appliance rebates, state assistance programs, how to avoid having your heat shut off, and what to expect to pay for heat this winter.
Experts from the State Energy Office, Cheyenne Light, Fuel and Power, the Wyoming Public Service Commission, Wyoming Department of Family Services, Energy Share Wyoming, Habitat for Humanity and AARP will provide you with information and answer your questions. The Laramie County Library will have a list of books and resources available to help you make your home more energy efficient, and will offer tours of the energy efficient measures they use to save the city and county considerable money while keeping the library comfortable too.
A complete schedule of presentations and a list of information booths will be available closer to the event, but please mark your calendar to join us.
AARP offers suggestions on how to make a home more energy efficient through its Create the Good®, Operation Energy Save tip sheets. The tip sheets can be used on your own home or to help a friend, neighbor or members of your community. Several community service groups in Wyoming are using the tip sheets to assist low-income residents and/or people with limited mobility to make their homes warmer and lower their home heating bills in winter.
If you would like to start an Operation Energy Save community service project, please download the tip sheets and let us know how we can help. You can reach the AARP Wyoming office toll-free at 1-866-663-3290 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
