Online, B4UBuy Workshop

Tips for Replacing Your Water Heater

Saturday, December 5th, 1:30pmpm

Suitable for home- and small business-owners, LCAN will offer consumer tips for determining whether you should consider replacing your water heater and, if so, how to replace it with more energy efficient, cost effective equipment, suited to your needs.  We'll cover traditional gas-fired stand-by, on-demand and hybrid options. 

We'll also cover how to choose a reputable contractor who'll meet your needs professionally, for a fair price.

B4UBuy: Going Solar at Your Home or Business

It's not too late to tap the sun for clean solar power.  Yes, LG&E has requested state permission to  change net-metering rules in regressive ways, but there's still time to install and receive net-metering with parity and the 26% federal tax credit!  We recommend you do so before June 2021. 

Attend an LCAN "B4UBuy" workshop to visit an existing, easy-to-see system, then come indoors for tips and consumer advice, as well as get answers to your questions. 

1pm, Saturday, March 27

Seating is limited, so registration is required, here

Love your mother!

Show your love for our planet as you celebrate this Valentines Day!  Choose cards made of recycled or sustainably harvested paper.  Giving chocolate or flowers?  Look for sustainably produced, fair trade options, ideally from a locally owned vendor.  Or skip the cut flowers and give a card promising to take your loved one to a native plant nursery this spring to choose something for the garden or patio.  See LCAN Network members Dropseed Nursery and Idlewild.
