(Submitted) Make Oak Ridge Energy Efficient (MORE2) is hosting two informative meetings during October. Community members interested in learning how to reduce energy usage in their homes and how to apply for MORE2 are encouraged to attend one of the following:
- Energy Savings Workshop: Thursday, October 13, 5:30 – 6:30 pm at the Oak Ridge Civic Center Craft Room, 1403 Oak Ridge Turnpike
- Public Meeting: Thursday, October 20, 4:00 – 5:30 pm at the Scarboro Community Center, 148 Carver Avenue
Attendees will receive Energy saving items and low to no-cost energy saving tips to immediately improve energy savings in their homes, along with information on other energy saving programs.
MORE2, funded by TVA, kicked off in April and is actively seeking homes in Oak Ridge to install energy-efficient upgrades, such as heat pump air conditioners and water heaters. One recent participant expressed how happy he is with the improvements to his home and stated that his utility bill had dropped significantly in just one month. Other participants are also reporting reductions in utility bills and great overall satisfaction with MORE2 and the improvements to their homes.
In addition to installing upgrades, MORE2 is working to empower residents of the Oak Ridge community with energy efficiency education, ultimately leading to lower electric bills and a healthier environment.
Qualified homes must be at least twenty years old and have electric heat.
