The Georgia Residential Energy Efficiency Network (GREEN) Project, part of FVSU’s Cooperative Extension Program, will host a free Energy Efficiency Workshop on Dec 4.

The workshop is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at FVSU’s Agricultural Technology Conference Center on 46 Camp John Hope Road. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. The GREEN Project is designed to help homeowners conserve energy that will in turn save them money.

 Topics of discussion include the proper use of insulation, energy audits and use of energy saving lights and appliances. The event is open to the public.

“All participants will be learning about low to no cost ways to make their homes more energy efficient,” said Billy Brown, FVSU’s energy educator.

Funding for the GREEN Project and its workshops are provided through a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA).
