This ten-session training prepares volunteer Energy Navigators to help others in the community understand their energy use and make progress towards reducing energy use and bills, and switching from fossil fuels to renewables. Focus is on helping low- and moderate-income residents--both homeowners and renters--save energy and money.
Navigators will learn about programs and options that can help homeowners and renters cut down on their energy use and bill, reduce their carbon footprint. Topics include understanding energy bills, home energy efficiency, renewable heating, solar energy, transportation alternatives, and more. Applications are due March 11th, and training begins on April 11th, 2018. A limited number of stipends are available to support the engagement of underserved groups.
