DREMC plans workshop to help Moore County residents lower energy bills

LOCAL NEWS — Duck River Electric Membership Corporation (DREMC) will host free Home Energy Workshops in six local communities, including Lynchburg, during the month of March. The Lynchburg event takes place on Tuesday, March 3 at 11:30 a.m. at the American Legion Building.

Launched in 2017, over 750 southern, middle Tennessee residents have attended the workshops, which aims to help locals reduce their electric consumption through proper attic insulation and air selling as well as other money saving tips. Each family that attends will receive a free Home Energy Kit, which includes caulk, outlet and switch gaskets and more, to begin making energy efficiency improvements.  

“Proper attic insulation is a key element in making your home more energy efficient and comfortable,” says DREMC’s Residential Energy Advisor Pat Garrett. “For all-electric homes, heating and cooling accounts for about 50 percent of your electric bill. In the workshops, we not only share how much insulation is recommended for your home but also over 100 other energy efficiency tips to help lower your energy bills.”

DREMC will provide lunch. The event is free but reservations are required. If you can’t attend the Lynchburg workshop, workshops will also be held in Decherd, Manchester, Chapel Hill, Columbia and Shelbyville. For complete detail, click here. •
