Public Workshops to Highlight New Solarize Santa Barbara Program

Community Environmental Council will cover energy efficiency and options for going solar

The Community Environmental Council will hold free community workshops in May and June across South Santa Barbara County to help homeowners go solar through its new Solarize Santa Barbara program.

The next workshop will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m. June 1 at the Carpinteria Women’s Club, 1059 Vallecito Road in Carpinteria.

Solarize Santa Barbara workshops cover the basics of energy efficiency and solar, with experts on hand to answer questions. Highlights include:

» Introduction to energy efficiency — saving energy costs less than producing energy

» Basics of solar energy — powering your house with the sun

» Financing solar — exploring options

» Solarize Santa Barbara — making it easier and cheaper to go solar

These introductory workshops will explain how energy efficiency and solar work, discuss options for going solar, and provide an introduction to CEC’s new Solarize Santa Barbara program. Workshops are free and open to anyone interested in participating in this community-based project.

Workshops will be held:

» June 1, 6:30 to 8 p.m., Carpinteria Women’s Club, 1059 Vallecito Road

» June 7, 6:30 to 8 p.m., Goleta Valley Community Center, 5679 Hollister Ave.

» Solar SUNday, July 17, Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, 2559 Puesta del Sol Road

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
