Local residents interested in making their homes more energy efficient will have the opportunity to check out their options in person at a Community Energy Fair in Hyattsville later this month. 

The event, set for Wednesday, Feb. 27 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the first floor multi purpose room at the Hyattsville Municipal Building on 4310 Gallatin Street, will connect residents and property owners with neighbors currently participating in the Small Town Energy Program (STEP) and contractors who can provide home energy efficient renovations.

Funded by a three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, STEP helps homeowners take advantage of existing tax rebates and other government or retail discounts to lessen the financial burden of retrofitting a home to be more energy efficient. 

STEP is unique in that it provides a local "energy coach" who helps guide homeowners through the process of identifying financing options for energy efficient upgrades. It's designed to lower the information barrier which homeowners often confront when undertaking energy efficiency upgrade projects.
