Hi Everyone...

Just thought you would want to know that I'm teaching a three-day workshop from May 22 - 24 on net zero energy homes at my educational center The Evergreen Institute in Gerald, Missouri. This is a how-to guide to free yourself from utility company. 

You'll learn many steps you can take to reduce your carbon footprint and eliminate or drastically reduce utility bills through state-of-the-art efficiency measures and by installing clean, affordable, renewable energy. 

This workshop pertains to new and existing homes and qualifies for LEED-AP continuing education credits.
