Alexandra Hamilton Senior Energy Engineer with 3cea commented,

This is a great opportunity for businesses, communities and individuals to learn how to reduce energy usage and costs, lower their CO2 emissions and make a very positive impact on climate change. There are fantastic supports available to people making sustainable improvements to their property. 3cea can help them identify upgrades, access funding and in some cases recommend quality tradespeople.  I would encourage anyone considering their energy costs or output to attend our information event on September 21st to find out more.”
