Energy Education

Energy Education Classes are given througout the year by both the MCCAC Weatherization and Energy Assistance Programs. The Energy Education workshops provide clients with an opportunity to learn more about saving energy in their homes with some inexpensive practical ideas. Come find out about the latest technology in how to save energy–and dollars.

Energy Saving kits are given to class participants.  These kits include items like thermometers, LED light bulbs, switch plate gaskets and more.

Energy Education Classes are conducted by the MCCAC Weatherization and Energy Assistance staff who are well trained and certified in the many aspects of saving energy. Between them they have many, many years experience in the energy and weatherizaton field.  

Please contact our office for times and places future Energy Education classes will be held. (541)298-5131 

Weatherization

Bob DeRochernew Weatherization Coordinator, is the “go-to” person when it comes to weatherization.  Weatherization is a series of applications applied to a home in order to minimize energy loss…in other words, to bring down the cost of heating and cooling and to provide a more comfortable atmosphere within the home. 

Installation measures such as weather-striping, caulking, water heater wraps, attic/floor/duct insulation, and, depending on need and availability of funds, new windows. Energy saving measures are applied by local licensed contractors

Application for this program is based in income eligibility. When applying for Energy Assistance the intake worker will ask you if you are interested in having your dwelling weatherized and you should tell them yes if you are. Both owners and renters are eligible for the program.
