REEP Green Solutions is currently investigating the possibility of hosting "Bring Your Own Bill (BYOB)" Work Parties.
In preparation for these work parties, homeowners will be asked to download their electricity usage data from their hydro company. They will then be given guidance on understanding the information within the context of an Excel spreadsheet application. Methods for reducing electricity consumption will be highlighted before, during, and after the work party gathering.
In late January 2015, REEP will be hosting an initial focus group for individuals to test out the Excel spreadsheet and give feedback on the process.
REEP would welcome student participation in the refinement of the Excel spreadsheet and/or the focus group in January. This project could be integrated into a class project or professional development portfolio. I encourage you to consider this opportunity and please feel free to share with colleagues within your appropriate network.
Expressions of interest are requested on or before Mon. Jan. 12th, 2015. Please feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Maria Legault, Energy Programs Coordinator, with any potential student connections or questions about this project (email@example.com or 519-744-9799 ext. 1).
