The Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will host three “Energy Roadshows” in November, with the next one scheduled for 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Silver Spring Library. Energy Roadshows are open-house-style events to learn about all things energy, including how to make homes more comfortable year-round, various options for switching to renewable energy and how to spot energy scams. Information at the shows will help residents keep more money in their pockets by reducing the amount of energy they use in their homes.
At the roadshows, there will be experts providing brief presentations on energy-saving programs of various scales, including efficient appliances, electric vehicles, home energy audits, solar installations and energy assistance opportunities. Information also will be available on energy-related scams that have had an increasing presence in the Washington area.
The schedule for upcoming Roadshow events:
- Thursday, Nov. 7, 5:30 -7:30 p.m. Silver Spring Library, 900 Wayne Ave., Silver Spring.
- Thursday, Nov. 14, 5:30 -7:30 p.m. Germantown Library, 19840 Century Blvd., Germantown.
- Thursday, Nov. 21, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Olney Library, 3500 Olney Laytonsville Rd., Olney.
