CASSOPOLIS – Do you feel like your home is an energy money pit?

Managing your home energy use doesn’t necessarily have to involve new windows and appliances, and certainly doesn’t have to break the bank.

Maintaining a comfortable, energy-efficient home can be as simple as identifying wasted energy and making easy and inexpensive changes.

Midwest Energy Cooperative is pleased to present Weatherization Works, a community forum to share simple, inexpensive ways you can manage your home energy use.

Professional energy auditors will explain how to identify wasted energy and make your home more efficient. They will also share ways you can change your own behaviors to reduce usage.

Midwest Energy Cooperative will sponsor two forums in southwest Michigan. Both are free and open to the public.

The first is Tuesday, Oct. 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Cass District Library in Cassopolis, and the second is Wednesday, Oct. 7, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Van Buren County ISD in Lawrence.

For more information or to reserve a space at one of the forums, please contact Lori at (269) 445-1139.

Midwest Energy Cooperative is a member-owned electric utility providing electric distribution and an assortment of energy-related programs and services to more than 35,000 customers in 11 counties in southern Michigan and northern Indiana and Ohio.
