On Tuesday, April 12, the City of Woodland and Yolo Energy Watch will host an informative and no cost Fix-a-Leak/Fix-a-Light workshop from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Woodland Senior and Community Center. No preregistration is required.
This two part workshop will touch on the interdependence of water and energy and teach participants how to save money on their utility bills by catching silent energy and water wasters. The workshop will feature three main presenters speaking on leak detection, LED lighting, and power-saving energy strips.
Easy repairs and upgrades taught at this workshop can lower monthly utility bills. The average American home wastes 10,000 gallons of water a year, which can be enough to fill a backyard swimming pool. Similarly, Cornell University estimates that plugged in, but not used electronics cost an average household $200 a year in unused energy.
Workshop attendees will receive the information and tools needed to stop paying for unused water and energy. Takeaways include a guide to locating household leaks, a reversible screw driver to help tighten irrigation leaks, and an LED light bulb. All participants will also be entered to win a smart, energy-saving power strip.
