From Mel Downey-Piper, who has led several workshops on Basic Energy Education in Colonial Village as part of the Neighborhood Energy Retrofit Project (NERP):

“I did my first neighborhood training this past Saturday at my place and it went really well!  I think everyone had a great time and learned a lot from one another. Everyone introduced themselves and shared a few things that they already do to save energy.  That really got the conversation going and set the tone that everyone was here to learn from one another. Folks seemed interested in the Clean Energy Durham tracking tool.  The BINGO game is a great learning activity.”

On Friday September 24, Anne, Danny and Donna hosted the first Neighborhood Energy Retrofit Program Basic Energy Education Training in Spring Valley neighborhood.

From Donna Levy, Spring Valley neighborhood trainer and volunteer extraordinaire:

“We had 10 homes represented (13 attendees).   We found that the content presented was applicable to all homeowners.   The group was very interactive and had some very good questions.  Some we could answer, and some we could not (but plan to get back to the attendees once we find out the answer). All attendees enthusiastically agreed that they learned something from the presentation.”
