The University of Illinois Extension wants to help residents save money and reduce their electricity usage. The Extension will be holding a “Save Energy, Save Money” workshop on Tuesday for residents to learn the basics of managing household energy usage.
Dr. Ashley Belle is the Environmental and Energy Stewardship Educator at the Extension. She says the workshop is interactive and will give residents common sense tips for conserving energy.
Belle says they will also be giving more information on technology many newer area homes have.
Those who register before the end of the day Friday will receive a free home energy conservation kit at the workshop. It is not required to RSVP by Friday to attend, but if you do and would like a kit, you can contact the Christian County Extension Office.
