Sky-high utility bills? Make your home energy-efficient

Making homes energy-efficient is the focus of a special presentation Wednesday night by the Sierra Green Builders Association.

Homeowners can hear from long-time builder and SiGBA Vice President Mike Leslie at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the APPLE Center for Sustainable Living, 412 Commercial St. in downtown Nevada City.

Retrofitting homes is part of President Barack Obama’s effort to create more “green jobs” and reduce the nation’s energy consumption.

Wednesday’s lecture is the first in Leslie’s three-part series on energy retrofitting – and part of SiGBA’s year-long homeowner education speaker series.
