B-Sage Event, Friday Night

Energy Upgrade California Program comes to Big Sur,

Friday, August 19, 7 pm at Big Sur Grange

Big Sur Advocates for a Green Environment (B-SAGE) is hosting an Energy Upgrade California program on Friday August 19th featuring Ecology Action speaker, Aleah Lawrence-Pine.

California’s new statewide energy efficiency program, Energy Upgrade California, works to increase energy efficiency and create green jobs. This unprecedented program emphasizes a “whole house” approach, in which a home is viewed as a complete system. All of the elements and systems—heating, air conditioning, water, and structural features like windows, ducts and insulation—should work together effectively to minimize energy use. Typical upgrade measures include air sealing, attic insulation, low flow shower heads and duct sealing to name a few.

With homeowner rebates and incentives up to $4,000, Energy Upgrade California expects to upgrade 100,000 homes, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create approximately 12,000 jobs statewide.

This “win-win” program is reaching out to on small communities, like ours, so make plans to come and hear how it can benefit you. For further info, see http://www.EnergyUpgradeCA.org. or email aleah Lawrence-Pine at alpine@ecoact.org.

Sorry it took so long to get this up, but as I said, I have been battling internet difficulties for a while. Seems to be sporadically good. I’m still working on it, but decided when I could not get on with my computer through one Verizon wifi card and 120v. booster, or with iPhone and a different 12 v. booster between 1 pm and 9 pm, that perhaps it is not me, but is Verizon and/or its tower(s). Mine is in San Ardo.

We will see how this goes, but next week, if it doesn’t substantially improve, I will try calling Verizon.
