Home Energy Efficiency 101 Workshops

The Sustainability Office has partnered with Water Services and local home contractor Cozy Home to host free Home Energy Efficiency 101 Workshops. At these workshops, a licensed contractor demonstrates simple home energy efficiency upgrades, how to weatherize your home, and save money on your utility bills. Workshop participants receive a free home energy efficiency kit to kick-start energy upgrades. The kit includes weather-stripping, caulking, a low-flow showerhead, faucet aerator, an LED lightbulb, and much more! All items are demonstrated at the workshop, so participants feel confident using them at home.

If you are interested in learning how to safely and effectively make energy efficiency upgrades in your home, attend one of our workshops this winter season. Workshops dates for the 2022 to 2023 season are below.

Energy Meter Lending Program

  • Flagstaff Public Libraries now offer portable energy meters for check out - it's as easy as checking out a book!
  • Energy meters are designed to easily measure how much electricity is used by plug-in appliances at home or at work.
  • By simply unplugging your appliances and electronics (e.g. toaster, coffee pot, DVD player) when not in use, can save you energy and money.
  • Energy meters are easy to use; simply plug the meter into an outlet and then plug your appliance or small electronic item into the meter. You will then instantly see how much electricity is being used and you can calculate the cost associated with the specific appliance or electronic. Check out an energy meter today:
