San Clemente Community Center is hosting a Energy Efficiency Community Meeting tonight, Thursday November 13 2014 at 6:00pm.
The Community Center is located at 100 North Seville.
The City of San Clemente released the following statement on their website,
“A recent action by San Clemente City Council approved two financial programs designed to help the typical homeowner reduce energy and water consumption.
Costs for these home improvements, big or small, can now be attached to your property tax bill without having to qualify for a loan.
These investments (with rare exceptions), transfer financial responsibility to the new homeowner in the event of a sale.
Now that this financing tool will be in place in 2015 the challenge is to let people know about how this will work.
This is not for vendors, but we encourage local businesses in related fields to attend and learn more about becoming qualified providers.
Tom Bonigut, Assistant San Clemente City Engineer, will report on the financing program. Devon Hartman, Executive Director of CHERP (Community Home Efficiency Retrofit Project), will share CHERP’s success in community education and saving homeowners millions of dollars in utility costs while dramatically increasing the comfort, indoor air-quality, and value of their homes.
Local residents will speak about their own personal experiences with this program.
Q&A to follow.
Fifty percent of the energy used in homes is wasted. This is your chance to find out how to retrofit your home, earn thousands of dollars in rebates, and qualify for energy efficiency financing – all while reducing your energy bills and carbon footprint.
This exceptional program is being brought to you by Capistrano Bay League of Women Voters, San Clemente Green, and the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter.
CHERP will be giving away three FREE energy assessments worth hundreds of dollars to qualified homeowners, (those with household energy bills over $150.00 per month and are serious about doing a retrofit).”
