Residential Energy Efficiency Workshop

March 12, 16, 21, 23, 2013

Carroll, Hampton, Ft. Dodge or Graettinger, IA

 

Planning for energy efficiency is more important than ever when building or remodeling a house.

For that reason, local area Touchstone Energy® cooperatives are hosting FREE “Build It Right” workshops to provide tips and information about energy-efficient construction, features, and appliances. The information provided will be useful if you are a consumer thinking about building or remodeling your home and equally valuable if you are a building trades professional interested in learning more about new trends in building.

Workshop Details

Build It Right is being offered four times in March 2013. Register for the one that fits your schedule and your location.

New this year: Two Build it Right workshops will be preceded with a training, “Top 25 Code Violations,” taught by Dwight Kramer, northwest Iowa electrical inspector. The session is especially appropriate for electricians, but contractors and consumers considering building or remodeling may be interested in the information, too. Good for two CEUs for licensed electricians.

Registration includes coffee and snacks, as well as a free lunch. Please register at least two weeks in advance so meals and snacks may be ordered accordingly.
