Energy workshop set

Thursday, September 10, 2009

ROCKVILLE -- The Parke County Fairgrounds will be the site for an upcoming workshop sponsored by the Parke County Extension Office.

Residential Energy Workshop, will take place Tuesday, at the fairgrounds, located about two miles north of United States 36 on U.S. 41, north of Rockville.

The program will be in the 4-H Community Building, the second building off U.S. 41.

Residential energy is a huge cost for homeowners. As winter approaches, everyone needs to do what they can to conserve energy when possible and look for alternatives to traditional energy use.

Alternative energy is in the news, but experts say the cheapest energy is what isn't used. The program will provide examples and opportunities to help those attending make more informed decisions about energy use, conservation and alternatives.

The program is sponsored by the Purdue Cooperative Extension, Parke County, Sycamore Trails Resource Conservation Development Council -- Education Committee, and Bi-State Ag Program Group.

Presentations include "The Big Picture -- Energy Policy and its impact on our daily lives," by Purdue University's Otto Doering, "Top 10 tips for saving energy in your home," by Indiana Community Action Association representative Raoul Moore, and "Programs available from the Indiana Office of Energy Development."

The program begins with vendors available from 6-9 p.m. Presentations will begin at 6:30 p.m., and last until 8 p.m.
