Energy Habits Presentation - Chicagoland Whole Home Energy Savings Project

Over the past few months, Chicago Energy Consultants has been working closely with the Center for Neighborhood Technology, and the Historic Chicago bungalow Association on a pilot energy audit program. The goal of this program is to determine if a 30% reduction in energy consumption is possible for most Chicagoland homes. To meet this goal, Chicago Energy Consultants has been performing detailed energy ratings and audits for homeowners, along with safety inspections and other training.

Part of this training was a presentation on how homeowners might reduce their energy consumption, simply by changing often small things that they do - yes; turning off lights, turning down thermostats, and keeping the refrigerator door closed does actually save energy!

As promised, here is the material that was presented to the Historic Chicago bungalow Association's members:

The finished piece finally went on the air as a part of NPR's "How Green Is It?" series; you can listen to the interview, and read more here:
