Learn how to save on energy costs

Learn how to save money on energy bills through classes put on by the regional nonprofit NeighborImpact.

The organization will soon offer classes throughout Central Oregon geared toward simple ways to save home energy costs. Those attending will receive a free energy saving kit that includes compact fluorescent light bulbs, kitchen and bathroom sink aerators and flow-efficient shower heads.

NeighborImpact says the kit, combined with tips from the class, could help save more than $20 a month in utility bills.

The class is free but registration is required. Upcoming class times for the next three months are as follows:

In Bend, in the NeighborImpact classroom, 20310 Empire Ave., Suite A100: 5:30 to 7 p.m. Oct. 23, Nov. 27 and Dec. 18.
