SEN. KITCHEN INVITES PUBLIC TO ENERGY CONSERVATION WORKSHOP

PHILADELPHIA, DEC. 6, 2010 — Residents can gain a basic understanding of the best and most cost-effective ways to reduce their energy usage at the final free Energy Conservation Workshop of the season, sponsored by state Sen. Shirley Kitchen (D-Philadelphia), the Energy Coordinating Agency and Greater Brewerytown Community Development Corporation.

The workshop will take place on Thursday, Dec. 9 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Greater Brewerytown CDC, 3000 W. Master St. 

Attendees will learn how to seal their home through tips on using plastic storm windows, weather stripping and V-seal. They will also learn how to use a caulk gun and how to install foam insulation, rope caulk and more. Free weatherization materials will be offered.

“Peco energy rate caps will be expiring on Dec. 31, which means everyone’s bills will be increasing during the coldest months,” Kitchen said. “These energy workshops provide free, inexpensive and important tips for keeping your energy costs under control. We can all benefit from these workshops, so I urge everyone to attend.”
