Hot and humid weather is a fact of life here in Central Virginia during the summer. The question is whether you get relief from the heat when you walk inside your front door – and what price you pay in energy use and utility bills to stay cool. Join us for this workshop to get tips – from easy DIY ideas to more comprehensive options – on how to beat the heat and high cooling costs this summer.

This event is co-sponsored by UVA Community Credit Union, Blue Ridge Home Builders Association, and the Local Energy Alliance Program (LEAP)

When: Wed, Jul 20, 2011 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM
Where: ecoREMOD: The Energy House (608 Ridge St.)
