Renters and Homeowners Learn DIY Energy-Saving Skills

When it comes to home improvements, not everyone wants—or can afford—to hire a contractor. That's where free public workshops from Energy Trust and Community Energy Project come in.

Community educators teach in multiple languages DIY insulation and weatherization, and provide information on Energy Trust cash incentives. All participants—about half of them women—leave with the confidence to get the job done themselves, and know they can call an Energy Trust technician if they get stuck.

Strategic Energy Management and capital improvements at Contact Industries saves over $200,000 per year!

Contact Industries countered the hard-hit construction market with a successful energy-savings plan that leveraged Energy Trust incentives and services to reduce energy consumption at its Prineville plant.

The engineered wood products manufacturer focused on equipment improvements, Strategic Energy Management and operations and maintenance. A new sawdust collection system with high-efficiency motors reduced the company’s energy needs by 57 percent. With coaching from Energy Trust, employees are keeping the savings constant. “Turning off lights and not letting machinery idle are all no- and low-cost behavioral changes that lead to savings over time,” said Don Siemsen, continuous improvement manager.
