Forest Hills is in the ‘Game!’

Super Trainer volunteer David Charters helps a neighbor insall a CFL

Workshop number two in Forest Hills was a great success!  We started with a treasure hunt for incandescent bulbs, replacing them with CFLs.  The hunt was followed up by a discussion about safety and quality topics that relate to CFLs.

A neighbor shared a great story about cleaning under his refrigerator coils.  Cleaning the fridge coils made his fridge run so much more efficiently that the next day he had to increase the temperature dial because his food was freezing!

Everyone who returned to the workshop had done projects at home since the first workshop.  There were 3 neighbors in attendance who were there for the first time.  Way to go Forest Hills!

The next Forest Hills workshop will be Nov. 30.  We will be teaching weatherstripping, sealing the attic hatch, and cleaning the dryer vent.  If you live in Forest Hills and want to come to the workshop, contact Jenny.  If you live anywhere in Durham and would like to be a workshop host in your neighborhood, you are also welcome to contact me.

Welcome Forest Hills!

Neighbors gather around Susan’s fridge

Welcome Forest Hills as our newest Clean Energy Durham neighborhood!  Recently we held our first workshop in Forest Hills, a neighborhood of large, historic homes, all of which can benefit from our low-cost/no-cost DIY energy efficiency techniques.  As a real estate broker, workshop host Susan Herst is interested in the ways that getting neighbors involved in home energy efficiency increases property value. Other neighbors went home with a list of projects to do at home between now and the next workshop in October at Susan’s house.
