It’s a little short notice, but starting this Thursday, April 26, a 10-part course on how to lower your building’s energy costs and water bills will be offered by GreenHomeNYC and the Urban Assembly for Green Careers in Manhattan.
The classes will be held every Thursday night and can be taken individually or as a complete package, and it’s not too late to register.
Promoted at the Green Festival this past weekend, the course is ideal for building owners, managers, coop/condo member, supers, bookkeepers, comptrollers, or just anyone who wants to learn more about how multifamily buildings function, and steps they can take to reduce costs.
“Multifamily buildings in NYC use 3-6 times more energy and water per square foot than our single family counterparts, and very simple steps can help you reduce those costs. This class is not designed to sell you products, but rather, to walk you through a sensible series of steps and make a plan to reduce your costs,” said GreenHomeNYC.
The classes are designed for attendees with introductory to mid-level knowledge of building operations. The classes will be instructed by building specialists who will teach the classes to high school students from 5-6 p.m., and then teach the classes again from 6-8 p.m. in a more advanced form.
It’s advised that if you have no starting knowledge or need a refresher, then you should come to the early classes. If you already have some knowledge, then come to the 6 p.m. classes.
