Did you know that the average worship facility wastes 30% of the energy it uses because of inefficiencies?  Join the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Office of the Secretary, Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships for a FREE national webinar to learn how your faith-based and/or other community organizations can reduce costs by implementing realistic and cost-effective energy improvement projects.  Space is limited!

Participants will hear about no-cost ENERGY STAR® tools and resources that can help measure and track energy usage, as well as compare it to similar buildings nationwide.  Facilities that are ENERGY STAR® certified use, on average, 35% less energy and emit 35% fewer greenhouse gas emissions.  Participants will also learn low- and no-cost energy-saving tips.  For example, did you know that dirty filters on your HVAC equipment waste energy, overwork the equipment, and contribute to poor indoor air quality?  By cleaning or changing your HVAC filters every month during peak cooling or heating season, you can save money on your energy bill.

Participants will explore:

  • Ways to reduce costs by implementing realistic and cost-effective energy improvement projects
  • No-cost and low-cost techniques in order to save money
  • How to prevent pollution through ENERGY STAR® certification
 

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Office of the Secretary, Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships presents this national webinar.  This national webinar is presented through GoToWebinar, which is part of the Citrix GoToMeeting Family.
