ASHEVILLE -- Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College's Global Institute of Sustainability Technologies and the WNC Green Building Council are holding a competition to spotlight the impact of energy efficiency in homes.
The Energy Savers Competition will challenge teams of three households to save the most energy through the Neighbor Saves program at NeighborSaves.org. Team members will take a class on weatherization, get a home energy audit and hold work party days for the team.
Participants in Energy Savers will receive $500 toward assessing and weatherizing homes, a free Green Gauge energy and environmental features assessment, and the team saving the most energy will win cash and prizes along with savings on utility bills each year.
For more information, call 254-1995 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit NeighborSaves.org. Deadline to apply is June 30.
