Home Energy Efficiency 101 Workshops

The Sustainability Program has partnered with Water Services, local home contractor Cozy Home, and HomCo to host free Home Energy Efficiency 101 Workshops. At these workshops, a licensed contractor demonstrates simple home energy efficiency upgrades, how 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 shower head, faucet aerator, an LED lightbulb, and much more, and 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 upcoming workshops! The next workshop season will begin Fall 2020, virtually.

Home Energy Efficiency Tips

The Sustainability Section provides supportive programming to help Flagstaff residents lower utility bills, become more energy efficient, reduce energy consumption, and increase awareness of energy use.

The links below provide information to assist residents in completing simple home improvement measures to reduce energy costs. Each tutorial provides a list of the tools and materials needed, basic instructions, and general information regarding the improvement. In most cases, energy efficiency improvements pay for themselves over time because you will be paying for less wasted energy year after year!

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:
