Transition Philadelphia would like to invite you to a Home Energy Workshop on Monday, June 20th. It will take place at the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center (East Passyunk Avenue and Dickinson Street) at 7pm. Join us at 6:30pm for a potluck.

Transition Philadelphia welcomes the following to the event:

Philadelphia’s Energy Coordinating Agency (ECA) will suggest measures people can take to lower their energy bills and discuss programs offered by the ECA to help make homes more energy efficient.

Rory Tout from Bioneighbors Sustainable Homes LLC will present how Green Roofs help insulate your house in the winter and lower urban air temperatures and combat the heat island effect in the summer.

Jerry Silberman, Union organizer, peak oil activist for several years, will position Home Energy Efficiency in the context of peak oil and climate change.

It should be a fun and educational evening.

Transition Philadelphia is working to build community resilience in response to climate change, peak oil, and economic instability. They hold monthly workshops to strengthen community ties and to help us become less dependent on fossil fuels. We hope you will join us and work together to more fulfilling, less carbon intensive lives.
