On Wednesday, January 16 at7 p.m., the presentation will focus on Weatherizing Capes. On Thursday, January17, at 7 p.m. the focus will be on Weatherizing Colonials and Ranches in Needham. Each session will be led by experienced energy advisors from Next Step Living, a company which has completed 24,000 Mass Save® home energy assessments in Massachusetts. The workshops will last approximately one hour, with plenty of time for questions. All are welcome to come either night to learn more about their home’s weatherization options. Refreshments will be served.
