Retrofitting is a great and cost-effective way to create a home that is more energy efficient. This seminar explores what changes you can make to your home to save on energy. Join us for this great in person seminar that will cover the following:

  • Energy Tips: DIY Retrofit.

Dan will share energy tips and retrofitting options that can be easily implemented. Dan will share his experience and easy ways you can start your retrofit journey today. In this session, you will learn about the opportunities available for your home and ask any questions you might have.  Dan will also walk people through Energy Tips website as a resource to support people on where to start.
  • Tips for Renters.
