CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – The variety of home energy audit options can be confusing for property owners interested in making improvements and conserving energy. To help demystify these audits, Wilson College will host a free presentation – “Educating Homeowners on Four Tiers of Energy Audits” – from 1 to 2:30 p.m., Saturday, March 12, in Warfield Hall’s Allen Auditorium.

“The number and variety of residential energy audit names and delivery programs is confusing and makes it hard for homeowners to make decisions,” said Chris Mayer of Wilson’s Fulton Center for Sustainable Living, which is sponsoring the workshop. “Many homeowners simply choose not to have an energy audit, even though they know that there are energy conservation opportunities that may suit their homes and lifestyles.”

The presentation will be made by Roland Le Roux, director of engineering and technology for the National Energy Leadership Corps at Penn State University, and three representatives of Envinity, a State College-based company that performs energy audits and provides deals green design and construction services, including installing solar, geothermal and other renewable energy systems.

For more information about the seminar, contact FCSL Program Manager Chris Mayer at 717-264-4141, Ext. 3247, or christine.mayer@wilson.edu.
