Let's Team up for Energy Efficiency
The Kansas City Board of Public Utilities (BPU) is looking to collaborate with community partners and neighborhood groups to offer educational workshops for Wyandotte County residents. Together with our community partners, we have the opportunity to positively encourage and engage individuals and families to consider the way they use energy.Providing and promoting energy efficiency programs connect community members with local representatives for resources and free energy-saving information. Attendees can benefit from expert-lead energy efficiency workshops that focus on heating and cooling, lighting, home technology and other topics such as:
- Simple, effective and low-cost strategies that can be used to reduce water and electricity use.
- Learning how to take advantage of rebate incentive programs upon installing new energy-smart HVAC systems.
- The importance of renewable energy for our community and the benefits of community solar.
Working together to offer energy efficiency workshops bridges the gap between area citizens and the public agencies committed to serving our community. Community and neighborhood organizations interested in energy efficiency programs are invited to contact BPU Development Coordinator David Allen at (913) 573-9922 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
