Home owning parents, are you interested in existing options, including tax breaks, for residential solar electricity and water heating? Solar Oregon, a local nonprofit organization, will explain how to improve energy efficiency with solar power and what to do to install it in your home. This informational session takes place on Wednesday January 29th, 7-8:30 p.m. in the Community Room.
In the mean time, check out a Kill A Watt, an electrical usage monitor to see how much electricity your appliances are using. Simply plug the Kill A Watt into an electrical socket or power strip and then plug the electrical device you want to measure into the Kill A Watt. It makes a great science learning activity for the whole family!
