JULY 26: NMSEA ABQ Chapter Meeting - **/- Albuquerque, NM/*

This month's topic: “Energy Efficiency – Go Green to save $Green$.”

Sustainable Architect Sara Rain Stewart will address the importance of 
energy efficiency in reducing energy usage and carbon footprint, as well 
as contributing to a more sustainably built environment. We will look 
at: key concepts of energy efficient buildings and their application to 
both existing and new buildings, understanding your current energy 
usage, and simple improvements the homeowner can do to improve the 
performance of their home, save money and possibly get tax rebates. In 
addition our very own Board Member, Carl Axness, will be our special 
guest to demonstrate a new, yet old, more energy efficient cooking 
technology. Free.
