Energy Conservation and Solar Options Addressed at Aug. 26 Workshops and Tour in Pineville

MARSHFIELD, MO -

(Press Release from MU Extension Office)

Investing in energy conservation is currently providing one of the best returns on a person's money according to Bob Schultheis, a natural resource engineering specialist with University of Missouri Extension.

Persons wanting to learn more about energy conservation and solar power options are invited to attend the "Energy Conservation and Solar Energy Workshops and Tour." The workshops are at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 26 at Pineville Community Center, 602 Jesse James Road, in Pineville.

The cost of each workshop is $20 per person, or $30 for both workshops. Each household will receive one energy efficiency kit valued at almost $50, along with resource materials valued at over $25. These workshops are sponsored by University of Missouri Extension and are partially grant-funded to make them more affordable.

Pre-registration is required by Friday, Aug. 21. To register, contact the McDonald County Extension Center, 306 Harmon St., P.O. Box 336, Pineville, MO 64856 at 417-223-4775, by email at mcdonaldco@missouri.edu, or mail the pre-registration form available online atextension.missouri.edu/webster.

"By attending one or both of the workshops and implementing practices discussed, you can be guaranteed a tax-free, no-risk return on your investment. The percent of return will vary based on which practices a person adopts as a result of the workshops," said Schultheis.

The two-hour morning workshop will teach attendees how to spend as little as $100 to cut home energy bills by 25 percent or more. Suggested changes will target air leaks, insulation, water heaters, lighting, and more.

The two-hour afternoon workshop also features a tour. This workshop will explain the benefits and costs of solar energy for the farm, home and small business, what components are necessary, and how to use rebates and incentives to help pay for these solar systems.
