In the News: free energy-efficiency workshop Aug. 11

Purdue University's College of Technology will offer a free workshop Aug. 11 on making homes more energy efficient, and two energy-efficient homes will be open for tours.

Workshop participants will learn about simple improvements they can make to their homes to save energy, said Eric Holt, a graduate teaching assistant in the building construction management program.

They'll also hear about more involved options with renewable energies such as solar and wind.
