RCC-RILL addresses energy costs

“Save on Home Energy Costs!” It will be held on October 7, 14, and 21 at RCC’s Glenns CampusJust in time to prepare for winter heating bills, the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL) is offering a new class: “Save on Home Energy Costs!” The three sessions will be taught by energy expert Ron Saunders on October 7, 14, and 21 (Fridays), from 1 to 3 p.m., at RCC’s Glenns Campus, Room 118.

The goal of this course is to help you become more energy efficient by analyzing energy use in your homes and eliminating costly and unnecessary habits. It explains measures that will be effective in lowering your usage, lets you know where you will have to cut back to achieve these savings, and in general shows you how to exercise some control over your electric bill.

Ron Saunders spent thirty-six years working for Dominion Virginia Power, and received extensive training though the company’s energy conservation programs. He has given many seminars and speeches on how to use energy wisely and economically.

Advance registration, with a tuition payment of $35, is required to take this course.
