Get Tips and Incentives to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient
The annual energy bill for a typical single family home is approximately $2,200. Making homes more energy efficient helps reduce high-energy bills, improve comfort and protect the environment. Pinellas County Extension is conducting a citizens' education project with faculty from the University of Florida to provide education and materials to county residents to help them save money on their energy bill. Energy savings benefit the end-user as well as the environment.
This project is funded by an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant, through the U.S. Department of Energy. Participants of the Pinellas Energy Efficiency Project class will receive both tips and incentives to make their homes more energy efficient. Energy saving devices will be provided to all participants. The class is free to all Pinellas County residents. The class will be on Saturday, June 19, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Seminole Community Library at St. Petersburg College, Seminole Campus (9200 113St. N., Seminole.) To register, visit www.pinellascountyextension.org, click on the Online Class Registration button and then the Sustainable Living tab. You may also call (727) 582-2100 to register.
