Hello EAC Action News Readers!

This is a special bonus mid-month edition of the EAC Action News to inform you about next week's Energy Conservation Workshop at the EAC with Green Irene. Find more details below!

Go Green Workshop - Energy Conservation with Green Irene

ImageRebecca Rossi, local Green Irene Eco-Consultant and the Ecology Action Center are holding a free workshop on energy conservation on Tuesday, February 23, at 5:30 p.m. Join us at the EAC to find out if there are vampires lurking around your house. No, not the toothy, sun-shunning kind, but the sort that suck energy! Vampire power, also called “phantom load”, is the power consumed by electronics and appliances while they are switched off or in a standby mode. Rebecca will talk about vampire power and the many ways you can cut energy consumption in your home! This event will also benefit the EAC through any sales of green merchandise.
