Trinity Park Learns About Energy

February 21, 2011 at 4:52 pm Leave a comment

The ladies of Trinity Park rock, and they showed just how much at a neighborhood Basic Energy Education (BEE) workshop on Saturday, January 29th.  The workshop was led by Trinity Park resident Katherine Jordan, with assistance from Terry Alston Jones, Clean Energy Durham Community Fellow.  Katherine led the ladies in a great discussion:  “Were you aware that the typical home uses approximately 43% of its energy on heating and cooling?”  The group learned options for decreasing heating and cooling energy and shrinking their energy bills.  They also learned about saving energy on other household energy users, such as the refrigerator, the stove, and the clothes dryer.

During the second half of the BEE workshop, the ladies divided themselves into teams, put on their game faces, and had a stiff competition playing Energy BINGO!   The game was not as large as the Super Bowl; however, the teams were just as competitive and eager to learn more about saving energy.

By the end of the evening, Clean Energy Durham’s mission had been accomplished!  The group learned many low-cost, no-cost ways to save energy in their homes and a group of ladies from Trinity Park who did not know one another before the workshop had the chance to meet one another and build a greater sense of community!
