Energy Efficiency Workshop

Fort Valley State University’s Cooperative Extension Program, and the Georgia Residential Energy Efficiency Network (GREEN), will host the “Virtual Energy Efficiency Workshop” on Wednesday, June 17 from 10-11 a.m. 

Billy Brown, FVSU’s energy educator for the GREEN project, is the speaker for the  free one-hour workshop.  Brown will discuss topics such as home energy audits, energy efficient lighting and energy efficient appliances. A brief question and answer period will follow if time permits. 

Underserved, low-to-moderate income individuals, homeowners, renters and the general public are invited to participate.

“People can learn about low-to-no cost ways of saving on their utility bills and practice energy conservation,” Brown said.  

The FVSU energy educator said since the COVID-19 pandemic, people are at home longer and their utility bills are much higher. “Normally, a homeowner could save between $25-$50 per month with the energy efficiency tips used by the GREEN project,” Brown said. 

Pre-registration is required to be eligible for door prizes. Door prizes include energy efficiency kits valued at $250. To register, visit or contact Brown at (478) 825-6368 (
