Power of Energy Efficiency Fair coming Oct. 5

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland Healthy Energy Campaign invites the community to a Power of Energy Efficiency Fair from 2 to 6 p.m. Oct. 5 at the Art Circle Public Library. The fair, which is free and open to the community, focuses on urging more homeowners to take advantage of VEC’s home energy audit. 

“Come and win a door prize along with learning more about how to save energy and money,” said Jack Turner of the Cumberland Healthy Energy Campaign. Turner, along with several others, will describe how the home energy audits worked out well for them.

VEC will come to your home to find out ways it can partner with the homeowner to save energy and reduce power bills. Not only is the audit free, but homeowners can get back up to $500 on implementing the weatherization recommendations made by VEC. You can sign up for a home energy audit at the fair.

Displaying at the Power of Energy Efficiency will be many of the Quality Control Network Contractors, which VEC works with to follow through on its home energy audit recommendations: Action Heating and Cooling, Comfort Zone Insulation, Crossville Heating and Cooling, J&M Insulation and McCulley Siding and Windows. Lowe's and Zuercher Electric will have displays on Energy Star appliances and efficient lighting.

For those wanting to learn more about solar energy, Simple Energy Works and the Cumberland Solar Energy Association will be at hand. SOCM will have a display on how energy efficiency and renewable energy creates jobs within the community. 

Gay Stewart, with the Cumberland Home Builders Association, will give an overview of a home energy audit. Louise Gorenflo will discuss how VEC can help everyone get more energy efficiency so they can save even more money and energy. 

Door prizes have been donated by all the exhibitors. These include weather radios, cut flower bouquet, wine, baked goods, a Lowe's gift certificate, an energy use meter, restaurant discount and others. You must be present to win when the prizes are drawn.

For more information, contact the Cumberland Healthy Energy Campaign at 484-2633.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.

  • PLATEAU GARDENING: Cool-season lawn grass fertilization and soil tests

    Recently, I got an inquiry about the right timing for homeowners who want to fertilize a cool-season lawn which has bare spots that need over-seeding. An email from a new resident in the Crossville area asked how to take a soil sample and where to have it tested. Since problems with the pH or fertility of the soil beneath can result in chronically thin grass with persistent bare places up top, testing the soil then correcting pH and fertility to match plant needs can be an important first step in maintaining your lawn.
