Two free dinner workshops will be held in southern San Luis Obispo County on Thursday and Nov. 13 for homeowners to learn about home energy upgrades.
The workshops are presented by emPower San Luis Obispo County, a program initially developed by Santa Barbara County to help homeowners overcome obstacles to making energy-saving improvements to their homes.
County Supervisor Caren Ray will speak at the first workshop, which runs from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Nipomo Senior Center, 200 E. Dana St. The event is free and no RSVP is required, according to a news release.
The second workshop, on Nov. 13, will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the South County Regional Center, 800 W. Branch St.
During each workshop, attendees can ask questions and schedule a free visit for a look at their home’s energy performance, including the condition of the heating and air conditioning system, insulation levels, water heater and other major appliances that can contribute to high energy bills.
Local qualified contractors involved in the emPower Program will also be on hand to answer questions or talk with attendees one-on-one after the presentation.
