Learn why energy bills are soaring and how to reduce cost. Learn valuable skills to weatherize your current home or build a future home for optimal energy conservation. Learn how to take advantage of rebates and appliance trade-ins from local energy providers.

“This conference is designed so that attendees will leave with ideas and projects they can to do save energy,” said Mark Dyer, training coordinator. “Our hope is that attendees can get started on energy saving projects the very next day from the knowledge they receive at the conference.”

Guest speakers include Jennifer Hagen from Ameren Illinois, Bob Dickey from Eastern Illini Electric Co-op and Rob Westcott, dean of the LLC Center for Business and Industry.

The conference will be held at Lake Land College’s main campus on Saturday, Sept. 24, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the West Building, rooms 119 and 120.
