The Regional District of Nanaimo is providing education sessions to Nanaimo residents on sustainable, or green, building.
A session will be held on Oct. 3 in the Jingle Pot area between 1 and 4 p.m. at a new home that includes rainwater harvesting and solar energy. Address will be provided upon registration.
The Viridian Energy Co-operative will give a presentation on solar power at the Cedar Heritage Centre at 1644 MacMillan Rd. on Oct. 7, between 7-8 p.m. The presentation will deal with the value of site potential analysis and why it can be good to invest in.
A heritage home undergoing major renovation will be the subject of an Oct. 17 session in downtown Nanaimo between 1-4 p.m. The house is having a new foundation laid and will see a complete structural upgrade and deep energy retrofit, according to the regional district. This will present an opportunity to learn about challenges related to heritage home renovation. As with the Oct. 3 session, address will be provided to registrants.
All three of these sessions are free.
