Santa Barbara Homeowners Invited to ‘Dine and Discover’ at Free Energy Workshop

There’s an easy way for Santa Barbara residents to have a comfortable home while saving on utility bills no matter the season. Santa Barbara County’s emPower program invites local single-family homeowners to join their neighbors and "dine and discover" during an evening of great food and helpful information at a free workshop next Tuesday.

The workshop will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Veterans Memorial Building, 112 W. Cabrillo Blvd. in Santa Barbara. RSVP by clicking here. For more information, call 805.568.3566. A light dinner will be served.

Attendees will learn about common problems that affect the comfort and energy efficiency of local homes and get expert energy advice from emPower’s energy coach.

Event attendees will have an opportunity to:

» Hear how to improve their home's efficiency, comfort and indoor air quality

» Learn about utility incentives of $1,000 to $4,500 for home energy upgrades

» Get information on low interest financing through Ventura County Credit Union

» Meet trained, qualified contractors

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!
