In celebration of Earth Day, the Glebe Community Association is hosting the Old Home Earth Day Event to provide residents of older homes with an opportunity to learn and share ways they can conserve energy, reduce carbon emissions and live more sustainability.
The event features three main elements: workshops by home energy experts, informal discussions where neighbors can share their experience with home renovations and energy upgrades, and information displays on products, services, and incentive programs. Specific topics include:
- The economics of energy upgrades;
- Information on incentive programs for energy retrofits;
- Building science, energy audits and measuring your home’s carbon footprint;
- New technologies such as tankless water heaters, heat pumps, solar panels;
- Passive measures; and
- Heritage restoration.
This event is geared towards the entire family and will feature a variety of mini-workshops, information tables, displays, neighbours corners, speakers series and kids’ tables. Participants will also be eligible to win a $200 door prize from Krumpers Solar Blinds.
The Old Home Earth Day Event takes place from 10-3pm at the Glebe Community Centre (175 Third Avenue) on Saturday, April 22, 2017. Admission is free.
