Volunteers get trained in basic energy efficiency


Our Neighborhood Energy Retrofit Program (NERP) Basic Energy Education, Train-the-Trainer (BEE-TTT) workshops have been a roaring success!  Volunteers from the NERP neighborhoods got a basic education lesson in energy efficiency that they then taught to their neighbors.

A Fisher Heights volunteer learned a lot from her BEE-TTT workshop—she went home and tried doing some projects—here is what she had to say:

“After the workshop I went home and shut down my computer, I didn’t realize that I was turning off my phone too because they were hooked up together.”

“I wanted to clean the coils on my refrigerator but I can’t see them from the bottom of the refrigerator.”

“I want to use the PowerCost Monitor at my house.”

“I would like to host the NERP Do-It-Yourself workshop.”

The DIY workshop will be a great opportunity for this volunteer and her Fisher Heights neighbors to have the first two comments addressed—keep an open ear for the DIY workshops in February and March 2011.
