Energy Conservation for Homes and Businesses

March’s Statewide PA IPL Program focuses on Energy Conservation for Homes and Businesses and takes a deep dive into energy conservation by considering an energy audit of your home or organizational home. An energy auditor can help you develop a comprehensive energy reduction plan, listing priorities based upon your facility’s size, shape, age, construction type, usage and operation. You can save energy & dollars by analyzing the building envelope (roof, walls & floors/slabs) and operations. Start small, implementing projects that will help you to save budget for larger projects, or dive right in with medium to large size projects. Our expert speakers, Greg Wozniak, G A Wozniak & Associates, and Donald FitzgeeBottom Line Systems, can show you how to reduce your overall carbon footprint.
