Energy Conservation

 Don't forget about tomorrow's Conversations in Conservation event, from noon to 1 p.m. at the Westmark Hotel in Whitehorse. The speaker will be inventor and Certified Passive House Consultant Andy Lera. He’s designed and built his own Passive House near Whitehorse and he wants to share his knowledge with you.

His talk is free and open to everyone. Cookies and refreshments will be provided.

A Passive House is a building that reduces 90 percent of space heating costs by being extremely well-insulated and incredibly air tight. Lots of planning is done to ensure all the components of the house work together to achieve a very high energy efficiency. The theory can easily be applied to buildings of any size, including apartment complexes and commercial space.

Conversations in Conservation is a regular series hosted by Yukon Energy. The talks occur the last Thursday of every month over the lunch hour. They feature various speakers who cover a wide variety of energy conservation-related topics.
