In the interest of a greener community in Portola Valley, a free workshop on improving energy efficiency at home is set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, at the Community Hall at 765 Portola Road.
The workshops are organized by Energy Upgrade California, a consortium of city, county and regional government agencies whose goals include educating the public about energy efficiency and stimulating the energy-efficiency sector of the local economy, in part by providing rebates to reward greater efficiency.
"Every home has room for improvement when it comes to saving energy and money," according to the statement announcing the workshop. "Now, through Energy Upgrade California, homeowners in the Bay Area can reduce energy use, increase comfort, and add value to their home -- plus get up to $4,500 in incentives and rebates!"
The event begins with a reception and refreshments, with presentation and Q & A set to begin at 7 p.m. Go to this link for more.

Energy Upgrade California is a program of the California Public Utilities Commission in collaboration with California cities, counties, nonprofits, the California Energy Commission and investor-owned utilities, whose customers fund the program with "incremental" funding help from the U.S. Department of Energy.
