Experts will address easy ways to cut your energy bills while keeping your home or apartment sustainable and comfortable.

How can we live more sustainably and make our homes more efficient without breaking the bank? Hear about conservation and efficiency changes that the City of Alexandria and community members have put into practice. Learn about improvement projects that can help make your home or apartment more comfortable and affordable.

Ellen Eggerton, Sustainability Coordinator for the City of Alexandria, will expound on the City of Alexandria's 2019 Environmental Action Plan 2040 and what you can do to make sustainable lifestyle changes.

Specialists from Energy Masters will share tips and tools that can be used to reduce your utility bills while helping the environment too. The Energy Masters program is partially funded by the city of Alexandria and trains community volunteers on energy and water efficiency to then make improvements in low income housing communities in Alexandria and Arlington. The Energy Masters program is jointly managed by the Virginia Cooperative Extension and EcoAction Arlington.
