WEATHERIZATION WORKSHOP 

Date & Time  November 1, 7pm-9pm

Cost  Free Admission

Location Northeast Minneapolis Tool Library – The Thorp Building – 1620 Central Ave NE Suite 126

Description  Are you interested in learning more about how your home uses energy and how to prepare your home before winter? Join us in welcoming our partners at the Center for Energy and Environment (CEE) for a presentation on energy-saving tips to make your home more comfortable this winter. You will learn about do-it-yourself options, plus you’ll have an opportunity to schedule a Home Energy Squad Enhanced visit.

At the workshop you will hear about the Home Energy Squad Enhanced, a home energy visit program provided by CenterPoint Energy and Xcel Energy in partnership with the City of Minneapolis. At an Energy Squad visit, a team of two energy consultants will come to your home to install energy saving materials, evaluate your home’s energy use with a blower door test and an infrared scan, AND provide you with a customized Energy Fitness Plan that may include a quote for any recommended insulation and/or air sealing improvements. This unique opportunity is the result of the nation leading Clean Energy Partnership formed to help Minneapolis reach its clean energy goals.
