Twenty-two percent of the energy used in the U.S. is used in homes and 11 percent is used by passenger cars. This means that homeowners with cars can have a big effect on the economy and the environment by using solar energy, reducing energy use and driving electric cars. In this session attendees will learn how to achieve energy balance at home through conservation, efficiency and the use of solar energy. Topics that will be covered include technologies, costs, benefits and available incentives.
Four Program Takeaways:
- If solar energy can be used in the Pacific Northwest and if it should
- The costs and benefits of solar energy, and how incentives and financing can help
