Want to improve the efficiency of your home? Interested in building to net-zero? Do you think affordable housing should also come with lower monthly utility bills?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, we have the series for you.
This fall, CORE is teaming up with CLEER and Garfield Clean Energy to give you — architects, builders, contractors, homeowners, and energy nerds — the tools needed to reduce emissions generated in homes and buildings.
The three-week series will start off with a dive into passive house, a set of design standards that utilize energy efficiency to improve the comfort of homes while reducing energy usage. American Institute of Architects (AIA) credits will be available for this workshop. Week Two will feature local Carbondale architecture firm, 2757 design+build co. The firm principals, Erica and Brian Golden, will showcase projects in our own backyard: Habitat for Humanity’s Basalt Vista Housing Partnership and a new building design in downtown Carbondale. The final workshop brings Cary Wiener with CSU Extension back to the valley. Wiener will discuss how making energy efficiency upgrades then plugging into solar is the perfect recipe for establishing a low-energy home.
The “Fall Energy Innovation Series” launches on Thursday, October 18th. Each workshop will begin at 5:30 pm in the Calaway Room at Carbondale’s Third Street Center. This workshop is FREE and open to the public, with light refreshments provided. Please RSVP by calling 970.925.9775 ext.503 or email email@example.com.
