WAVERLY TWP. — Local non-profit SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education and Development Support) is partnering with the Waverly Community House (Comm) to present a free workshop from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24 and Thursday, Aug. 25 at the Comm, 1115 N. Abington Road.

This two-night course will teach participants about saving energy and money at home, the different types of solar energy systems, how these systems work, how to evaluate a site for a solar installation and how to take the next steps. SEEDS will provide information on commonly available rebates and incentives for solar installations, certified solar installers in the area and options for people who prefer to do it themselves.

The sessions can also be helpful to businesses or non-profits who may interested in lowering their energy consumption and/or generating their own electricity.

Although SEEDS has presented dozens of solar workshops in Wayne County and elsewhere, this will be its first in Lackawanna County. The two-night session is free and open to the public.

Registration is encouraged and can be completed by emailing registration@seedsgroup.net or calling 570-245–1256.
