Learn to Lower Utility Bills at the Home Energy Savings Fair

Posted: 04/09/2015
Ever wondered how you could save money on your utility bills? Knoxville Scores wants to help you answer that question at their Home Energy Savings Fair on Monday, April 13, 2015. Knoxville Scores is a coalition of organizations that want to challenge Knoxville residents to save money on their utility bills as part of the Georgetown University Energy Prize, a national competition to develop and implement creative, sustainable, and replicable strategies to save energy. 

The Home Energy Savings Fair is a free, public event being held at the Knoxville-Knox County Community Action Committee (2247 Western Ave) from 10am to 2pm. The event will feature weatherization contractors, KUB representatives, energy educators, and city offices to answer your questions on saving money on your utility bills. Attendees will be eligible for door prizes.

"If the cold winter weather left you with a high power bill, come to the Home Energy Savings Fair and meet the weatherization contractors, utilities, and educators who can help you tame that bill both in winter and summer," says Knoxville Scores team member Louise Gorenflo.

Knoxville is one of 50 communities across the nation chosen to compete in a two-year, $5 million competition to see which community can reduce its energy consumption the most. The competition measures both residential and municipal energy use. While the City of Knoxville and Knox County Schools focus on municipal consumption, Knoxville Scores seeks ways to engage Knoxville residents to find way to increase the efficiency of their homes. 

"The Home Energy Savings Fair will be an excellent opportunity for residents to learn how to save energy and improve their home's comfort," said Mayor Madeline Rogero. "We hope folks will put to use many practical, low-cost tips to reduce their utility bill and help Knoxville compete in the Georgetown University Energy Prize." At the Home Energy Savings Fair, learn how to participate in the challenge, reduce the energy consumption in your home, and compete for door prizes.
