Opportunity: Energy Advocate Class

Energy Advocate Class

Register by February 9, 2011
Starts February 16, 2011

Are you interested in reducing residential energy use in Corvallis? The Energy Advocate class prepares volunteers to provide follow-up assistance to Corvallis residents who receive a Home Energy Review from Energy Trust of Oregon.

During the 5-week class, participants gain an in-depth understanding of home energy efficiency and conservation.  Topics include weatherization, space and water heating, appliances, windows, solar, funding energy efficiency projects, and calculating payback times.

After the class, Energy Advocates work one-on-one with residents to help them make informed decisions about home efficiency, prioritize projects, identify funding, and find the right contractor. Energy Advocates receive 40 hours of training throughout the year and are asked to volunteer an equal amount of time assisting residents.

Register for the Energy Advocate class online by February 9th.

Schedule: The five-week class meets Wednesdays (and one Monday) from 6-9:00 p.m. beginning Feb. 16, 2011.
Cost: $50 fee (scholarships available, no one will be turned away for inability to pay).
Sponsor: Corvallis Environmental Center, Energy Trust of Oregon, and Corvallis Sustainability Coalition’s Energy Action Team.
