A Live Webinar
Zero Carbon, Zero Bills for Your Home
January 19 7:00 p.m.
This webinar is taught by David Green, who has completed an energy transformation of his own home and has written a book about it. (Zero Carbon Home). The improvements he has made by installing insulation and air-sealing, heat pumps and solar PV have reduced his energy costs and carbon footprint to zero, resulting in an excellent return on investment, and he will tell you how. Green describes himself as “an energy geek, with a degree in physics from Oxford University, and a finance nerd with an MBA from Harvard Business School.” After a presentation by Mr. Green, there will be an opportunity for Q & A. All attendees will receive a free electronic copy of his book.
This event was initiated by the Environmental Team at First Parish in Concord, which will serve as the event host. It will be co-sponsored by ConcordCAN and other local organizations assisting in publicizing it. There is no charge for participating, but registration is required.
