Living Green Olympia: February 2014

Incentives for Energy Improvements in Rental Homes

Improving energy efficiency is a "makes sense" goal for home owners.  A more comfortable home to live in and lower energy bills are great benefits. But when it comes to landlords, things get more complicated.  Many landlords would like to make their rental properties more energy efficiency for a variety of reasons, but the financial benefits of doing so typically go to the renter rather than the landlord.

This Thursday, February 13, 2014 from 12:00 - 4:30 PM, there will be a chance to hear some ideas about changing that dynamic, and participate in the conversation.  This event will be located at Thurston County Public Health & Social Services at 412 Lilly Rd NE, Olympia.  This Vision2Action community symposium should be a "don't miss" opportunity!

The program will be presented by Steve Abercrombie who is the president of the South Sound Chapter of the NW EcoBuilding Guild.  A panel will add more ideas from the perspectives of local property managerment company representatives, private landlords, renters, Puget Sound Energy and others.

There will also be breakout sessions where you can add your ideas and thougts to this process.  The cost for attending the event is $20 per person if paid in advance or $25 at the door, though it is FREE to landlors, property managers and renters!
