JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's been a cold, long winter for north Florida, and the next week will bring more temperatures in the 30s, indicating the warm weather isn't on its way yet.
The low temperatures mean compromising between comfort and cost; heating bills are high.
Beginning this evening, JEA is hosting several workshops to help residents learn how to better manage home energy usage.
The workshops will be held at the following Jacksonville Public Library locations and times:
- Today, 6 - 8 p.m., West Regional Library
- Tues., Feb. 15, 10 a.m. - noon, Mandarin Regional Library
- Sat., Feb. 19, 10 a.m. - noon, Beaches Regional Library
- Sat., Feb. 26, 10 a.m. - noon, Main Library
At the workshops, efficiency experts will offer tips to trim costs and save energy throughout the home, as well as incentives that can help offset costs.
Also at those four libraries, JEA is offering free home energy evaluation kits for anyone with a library card. Experts will be on hand to show how the kits work.
JEA's website offers a home energy analyzer that also offers advice on maximizing a home's energy efficiency.
