Waite Park Residents Invited to Energy Workshop on Thursday, August 19



Join over 1,700 Minneapolis homeowners that have already participated in Community Energy Services, the one-stop residential energy program designed to help save homeowner's energy and money.


A free educational workshop for Waite Park homeowners will be held in Audubon Park (1320 29th Ave. NE) on:   

Thursday, August 19th, 6:30 p.m. 

To reserve your spot or for other workshop dates contact:

 Ashley Robertson at 612-335-5869 or arobertson@mncee.org. 

By attending the workshop, you are eligible to receive a customized home visit, a $400 energy efficiency package for a co-pay of only $30, however the first 20 homeowners who register will have $10 of their co-pay paid by the Waite Park Community Council!  This package includes two energy professionals from the Center for Energy and Environment spending an hour and half with you in your home.  During this time they will perform a blower door test, which measures air leaks, as well as install energy and money saving materials.  Some of these materials may include: compact fluorescent light bulbs, a programmable thermostat, low-flow showerheads, faucet aerators, pipe wrap and more!

Homeowners are also provided with 12 months of personalized energy tracking. This unique feedback allows you to see how your home uses energy, compares your energy use to like-sized homes and gives you future saving potential.  Participants are also given information on financing, incentives, the federal tax credit and gain access to rebates available only to Community Energy Services.

Community Energy Services is provided by the Waite Park Community Council, Center for Energy and Environment, City of Minneapolis, CenterPoint Energy and Xcel Energy.  Funding for this project was provided by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR).
