The CWLP Energy Services Office will host another Low-Cost/No-Cost Efficiency Workshop on Wednesday, September 23rd. The free 90-minute workshop, which focuses on home energy efficiency improvements that can be made for little or no cost, provides residential electric customers with a crash course in how to become efficiency do-it-yourselfers.

The workshop will take place from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the Carnegie Room South at the downtown branch of Lincoln Library, on the corner of Seventh and Monroe Streets. The program is open and free of charge to all CWLP residential electric customers.

Workshop participants will receive instruction and hands-on experience installing a variety of weatherization products, including caulk, weatherstripping and flexible interior storm windows. Participants will also receive a free take-home “starter kit: of several of the products discussed in the workshop. This program can be especially beneficial to customers living on low or fixed incomes who are having difficulty covering their home energy costs and who can’t afford to hire someone to make necessary efficiency improvements to their homes.

Reservations for CWLP’s Low-Cost/No-Cost Efficiency Workshops call 789-2070 or email your name, residential address and daytime telephone number.

In addition to these scheduled public workshops, the CWLP Energy Services Office also offers Low-Cost/No-cost Efficiency Workshops to interested churches, neighborhood associations, and other community and civic groups who expect a minimum attendance of at least 15. In most cases, the workshops can be set up at the convenience of the requesting organization.
