Community workshops may be offered to save energy

The Kansas City, Kansas, Board of Public Utilities is looking to collaborate with community partners and neighborhood groups to offer educational workshops for Wyandotte County residents.

The BPU and the community partners will encourage residents and families to consider the way they use energy.

Interested community members who attend a workshop may be connected with local representatives for resources and free energy-saving information, according to a spokesman. Those who attend may benefit from workshops focusing on heating and cooling, lighting, home technology and other topics, including:

• Simple, effective and low-cost strategies that can be used to reduce water and electricity use.
• Learning how to take advantage of rebate incentive programs upon installing new energy-smart HVAC systems.
• The importance of renewable energy for the community and the benefits of community solar.

Community and neighborhood organizations interested in energy efficiency programs may contact BPU Development Coordinator David Allen at 913-573-9922 or dallen@bpu.com.
