SustainableWorks covering South Hill

SustainableWorks’ South Hill Energy Efficiency Kick-off event is at the Sacajawea Middle School cafeteria on Feb. 23 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. SustainableWorks is a grant-funded program that will do a complete energy audit of private and small business dwellings for $95 – then advice homeowners on improvements that can reduce their energy use and bills. Some may save as much as 40 percent on their energy bill, after retrofits are completed. The goal is for the retrofit (new furnace, better insulation, new water heater, just to mention a few examples) to pay for itself by the energy savings.

Here's a link to a story about retrofits in the South Perry area.

Some financing options are available. The program has already completed 100 retrofits first on the east side of the South Hill and then in the Shadle-area. This time around, the program covers the entire South Hill. Go to www.sustainableworks.comor call (509) 532-1688 to learn more about the program.

SustainableWorks is partnering with Washington State University Extension, Avista Utilities, the City of Spokane Environmental Programs, the Spokane Alliance and others.
