Pete Street. Now in Chapel Hill and Carrboro.
The Chapel Hill and Carrboro WISE programs are sponsoring Basic Energy Education Workshops and Hands-On Workshops to teach residents simple actions that everyone can do around their home or apartment to lower their monthly utility bills. Examples of these easy-to-do actions include:
caulking air leaks around doors and windows
making your refrigerator run more efficiently by cleaning the coils and keeping it full
installing inexpensive faucet aerators that reduce water use and water heating costs
For less than what it costs for a family of four to eat out for one meal, most households can do a number of these simple projects and enjoy the cost savings every month when their utility bills arrive.
To get more information or to sign up to attend or host one of these energy-savings workshops, call:
