On Tuesday, November 9, 2010 the City is partnering with Delaware County Conservation District to host a "Bringing Green Energy Home" workshop from 7:00-8:30 pm at Chester City Hall in the community room, located at 1 Fourth Street, Chester PA. The workshop aims to educate homeowners and renters on alternative energy technologies, which include compact fluorescent light bulbs, solar-powered water heaters, hybrid vehicles and more.
During the program, the Pennsylvania Resource Council's trained environmental educators will present 90-minute multimedia and interactive presentations discussing all aspects of energy use in the home. Both traditional and non-traditional household energy conservation methods will be discussed. This workshop will benefit homeowners as well as business owners and landlords. Residents can learn about Energy Star appliances, insulation, low-e windows, and computerized regulation of thermostats and lighting. Environmental educators will be available to answer questions after every workshop.
