PEEP Classes Teach Energy Conservation, Provide Free Kits

Classes sponsored by the Pinellas Energy Efficiency Project (PEEP) offer valuable energy conservation tips and a free kit full of home energy saving devices worth $200. The PEEP project is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 through a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Energy. The project aims to provide education and materials to county residents to help them save money on their energy bill and promote a countywide reduction in the demand for energy.
The classes are free to all Pinellas County residents and will be held at various dates, times and locations throughout the county, but participants must preregister. To preregister or for more information, visit Pinellas County Extension and click on the "Online Class Registration" button. Residents may also call Pinellas County Extension at 727-582-2100 or e-mail.
In addition to the scheduled classes, civic organizations or other citizen groups are encouraged to host a PEEP class for their members.
