BEDFORD COUNTY, Tenn. — Learn how a few simple improvements can increase heating and cooling efficiency, lower energy bills, and create a more comfortable home at one of the free Duck River Electric Membership Corporation’s Home Energy Workshops. Duck River invites Moore County residents to attend the Home Energy Workshop that’s most convenient for them. Five workshops are being offered across the DREMC service area with one at the Manchester DREMC office on Tuesday, Oct. 10, and the Shelbyville DREMC office on Tuesday, Oct. 17. Each workshop begins at 6 p.m.
