Weatherization Skillshop on March 17

Saturday, MARCH 17, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the HANNAFORD CAREER CENTER, Charles Avenue, Middlebury.

Get your green on! Go after one of our biggest carbon hogs—home heating—with this hands-on training in fundamental techniques for improving your home’s efficiency.  Participants will learn the basics of building science, how to find and seal trouble heat loss spots and practice installing rigid foam insulation, door weather stripping, and spray foam gun sealing in the attic and basement. This will prepare you to participate in Efficiency Vermont’s Do-It-Yourself program that provides rebates for owner-installed weatherization improvements of up to $2,500.

Hosted by Middlebury Energy Committee in collaboration with CVCAC and Hannaford Career Center. The training costs $50 and includes a text, lunch, and Home Energy Improvement Trailer tour. The trailer can be toured for free on Friday afternoon from 3-5 p.m. and all day Saturday until 3 p.m. For more information or to register, check out  or contact 888-514-2151 or e-mail
