Once again, we're teaming up with ReVision Energy and the Natural Resources Council of Maine for a women's evening of questions and conversation about heating systems, fuel choices, energy efficiency, solar power, state energy policy, and more. Join us at Peapod Jewelry on March 24, 5:30 pm for an energizing discussion, led for woman, by women. Space is limited, so please register by calling Jennifer Albee at 589-4171, or email email@example.com.
“Women are deeply invested in how their homes work,” says Albee, Revision’s Customer Relations Manager. “We have great questions that don’t always get asked and insights that aren’t always heard. This night is about changing that.”
Women’s Energy Night is part of a growing movement that includes Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program and Ladies’ Nights at hardware stores across the country. This year, jewelry artist Ronna Lugosch will host the gathering at her Peapod Jewelry Gallery (40 US Rte. 1, Edgecomb), and one of her signature “pea in a pod” necklaces will be offered as a door prize. There will be presentations, with ample time for conversation and questions, along with light refreshments
“Balancing home energy decisions can be a real challenge,” says Kathleen Meil, Evergreen’s Marketing & Customer Relations Manager. “Understanding the factors that go into those decisions – from mechanical systems and fuel choices, to options for improved comfort and efficiency, to the basics of statewide energy policy – is key to making them confidently.”
The evening will begin with home energy basics, including heating systems, hot water generation, and fuel choices. Once participants understand how they power their homes, the group will explore ways to manage home comfort and energy expenses with efficiency and renewable energy, and get an energy policy update from the Natural Resources Council of Maine’s Clean Energy Advocate, Emmie Theberge.
Other presenters include Kathleen Meil and Elise Brown from Evergreen Home Performance, a statewide leader in energy efficiency and provider of energy audits and insulation contracting; and Jennifer Albee from ReVision Energy, the most experienced renewable energy company in northern New England and a provider of custom-engineered solar hot water and solar electricity for homes, businesses, schools, and non-profits.
