Interested in learning how to make your home more energy efficient? Want to help our community reach our goal of becoming Net Zero by 2050?
Sustainable Westport is sponsoring a three-part FREE Residential Energy Learning Series just for you! Our sessions are designed to provide you with information, resources, and confidence to kick off your energy-saving home improvement project. An expert panel of energy professionals, paired with real-life Westporters who have been through the process of installing these products, will lead the conversation and answer any questions you may have.
Join us for “GOING GEOTHERMAL” on Tuesday, December 12, in Brooks Place at the Westport Library.
6:30 - 6:45 p.m. Welcome Reception
6:45 - 8:00 p.m. Presentation & Q&A
Have you heard all the buzz about geothermal but are still unsure what it actually is? Think geothermal is too expensive or complicated to install? Wondering if your home would qualify for geothermal? Our session will demystify the process of "going geothermal" with a panel of experts and a real-life Westporter who recently installed it.
Brian Gaulzetti, Senior Energy Consultant at Dandelion Energy, will provide an overview of how geothermal works, how it helps make healthier homes, and why it’s so effective at saving energy (and money!). Then our panel will explore the differences between ground-source and air-source heat pumps, as well as key considerations for installation. EnergizeCT Consultants James Lewis and Malik Arif, will also share information about special incentives and no-cost consultation services available to residents. Lastly, Westport resident Michael Anderson, who installed geothermal at his home, will join the panel during the Q&A to answer questions about his experience “going geothermal.”
Also, please be on the lookout for more information about our final Residential Learning Series, “Everything Solar,” in the new year (this event was originally scheduled for November 7).
