It’s one of the best-kept secrets in town! There is a service that can evaluate your home’s energy-efficiency and potentially trim your utility bill by 25%. Energy Resource Center is a non-profit that focuses on providing the service at no cost to families that most need the help. But homeowners who don’t qualify can still use the service, paying market rates (which helps ERC do work at no charge for those in need). ERC technicians are experts in heating, air conditioning, hot water heaters, insulation, etc. It’s the biggest, most reputable weatherization company in the nation.
In this episode, Mike Mazzola of Energy Resource Center sits down with Peak Environment Co-Producer Ellen Johnson-Fay to give her the full picture – including the fact that ERC has offices in Alamosa, Denver, and Loveland, in addition to Colorado Springs. If this episode whets your appetite for more information, or if you just want to see the place, put the September 26 Green Drinks event on your calendar (details under events below).
This episode is presented by the Green Cities Coalition. The Green Cities Coalition communicates the promise of embracing sustainable actions in our environment and with one another. We strive to collaborate in positive ways and create partnerships with other people and organizations inside and outside of the sustainability community.
Ultimately, our goal is to celebrate with you the achievements of those who contribute to the preservation and health of our local natural and human environments. We invite you to Communicate, Collaborate and Celebrate all things sustainable with us! Join us at our next Green Drinks gathering, Thursday, September 26, 5:30-7:30 pm at the Energy Resource Center.
