City Offers "MORE2" Energy Efficiency Classes

August 10, 2016

The Make Oak Ridge Energy Efficient (MORE2) program will begin hosting classes aimed at educating homeowners on cost effective ways they can make energy-saving improvements to their homes.

The first class is scheduled for Thursday, August 11, 2016. It will be held at the Oak Ridge Civic Center Recreation Building (1403 Oak Ridge Turnpike) in the AB Room from 5:30-6:30pm. 

Attendees will get an overview of the MORE2 program and how to register as well as a look at ways to lower energy consumption at zero cost to the homeowner. It will also cover “invisible” areas of the home that may need energy efficiency upgrades.
