PALMDALE – The city of Palmdale, in partnership with The Energy Network, will kick off its “Upgrade 100 Homes for Energy Efficiency Campaign” by hosting a free Greener Homes Workshop this Saturday.
The event will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, May 2, at the Manzanita Neighborhood Center, located at 38627 East 32nd Street East in Palmdale.
The presentation will cover how your home uses and loses energy, rebates and financing available through Home Upgrade, and what to consider before going solar.
Local contractors who are participating in the Energy Upgrade California rebate program will be on hand to answer questions about your home’s needs.
Information will be presented in English and Spanish. Free refreshments will be available and prizes will be given away.
”Are you looking for ways to make your home more energy efficient and valuable?” asked Palmdale Administrative Analyst Ben Lucha. “This workshop will give you the information you need to get started.”
“We’re coinciding the workshop with our other environmentally friendly events such as Environmental Pride Month and the 2015 Season of Service, to help bring our city closer to a greener, more sustainable future,” Lucha added. “Our goal is to help make 100 Palmdale homes more energy efficient which will reduce energy costs for the homeowners and improve the overall environment. Home Upgrade is a great program for the average homeowner to get started.”
Palmdale has been working hand-in-hand with The Energy Network, a non-profit providing rebates and incentives for energy efficiency retrofits through its Home Upgrade program throughout Los Angeles County.
The Home Upgrade campaign will run through November 2015 and will include homeowner outreach and events. Home Upgrade provides an outlet for homeowners to make innovative energy efficiency retrofits to their homes while still remaining affordable.
Home Upgrade, like other facets of The Energy Network’s work with homeowners, businesses, and public agencies can be an integral complement to existing local initiatives so that environmental goals are reached sooner.
“This co-sponsorship with The Energy Network supported by state-sponsored rebates and incentives through Energy Upgrade California will not only make our homes more efficient, comfortable, and valuable, but will also help us reach our energy use reduction goals,” stated Palmdale Mayor Jim Ledford.
