GAINS, The Greater Akron Innovation Network for Sustainability, 2nd Wednesday Network Night

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Start your new year with learning more about home energy efficiency and how you can implement small changes and reap big rewards.

What: GAINS 2nd Wednesday Network Night
Date: Wednesday, January 9th 2013
Time: 5:30 - 8:00 pm
Location: Musica
Cost: FREE to attend


Program Details:
Hallie Bowie, architect and founder of New Leaf Home Design will be presenting "The Triangle of Home Energy Use: Insulation, Ventilation, and Devices". This presentation will provide you with more than your standard "to-do's" for home energy efficiency. Instead, topics such as: how the unintentional ventilation of a leaky house wastes energy, why intentional ventilation is increasingly important as air leaks are sealed, how an energy audit can provide recommendations specific to your house about air leaks and insulation, and your role, as the user, in how your house uses energy and how greater energy efficiency can also mean greater comfort, will be discussed.

Cynthia Trotta, Energy Advisor from GoodCents, will be discussing home energy audits and program incentives available with Dominion East Ohio Gas.

Who is invited?
Anyone who wants to be part of a growing network of people who care about what happens in regards to our environment and healthy community living. We want to help our Greater Akron area grow sustainably and to make smart decisions moving into the future. We are people who want to contribute, lend a hand, offer experienced insight, and have a good time while we do it.

So, grab a friend or 10 & share the event on Facebook/LinkedIn and to everyone in your own network!

Parking:
We recommend the High Street deck, across from the main entrance of the Akron Art Museum, next to the Library. First hour in all city parking decks is free of charge. There is no charge after 5:00pm.

Entrance to Musica is down Maiden Lane; in between the restaurants Crave and 3 Point on East Market Street.

Other Details:
Since we like to encourage the growth of the GAINS community, this meeting is no different. What say's community more than POTLUCK! We would like to encourage everyone to bring their favorite dishes to share with each other. Tables will be set up near the bar area.
