Is Your House a Hybrid House?

We have all heard how hybrid cars are more energy efficient and have a smaller carbon footprint. What about our homes? More than half of all home energy use is from heating and cooling. The rest of home energy use is mainly for appliances, water heating and lighting. Does your home perform efficiently? Find out how home building technology has advanced and what options are available for existing homes. We will explore ways our homes can be more environmentally friendly and friendlier to our wallets.

The discussion will be led by a panel of local experts including:
Dana Mosher
Construction Technologies Department Chair Manchester Community College

Jack Schelling
Energy Efficiency Program Administrator PSNH Energy Star Program Manager.

Kate Peters
Program Administrator for the Home Performance With Energy Star Program, PSNH and Chair of the state's Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Energy Board

If you know ahead that you will be attending, please RSVP on Eventbrite.
