Have you had enough of stratospheric power bills? Perhaps you’ve thought about gathering your own energy from the sun or the wind, cutting your costs, and going a bit green in the bargain. Is it time to cut the cord?
Wednesday evening, September 19 at 7:00 pm, Warren McPherson, Director of Athens Montessori School, will talk about how he added solar arrays to the school, achieving significant savings and breaking even in a short period of time; he will also give you advice on how to do this to your own home. Solar experts, Gerd Schroth and Joel Huff, will be on hand to give hard info on what you need to do to make your own house more energy effective.
