Be a PEEPer!

The Pinellas Energy Efficiency Project (PEEP) is in full swing with thousands of citizens receiving energy-saving light bulbs and information on how to save energy and money in the home. Our next class will be held at the Clearwater Library Main Branch on Saturday, July 17th from 1:30-2:30 p.m. All of the classes are free and are offered as part of the US Department of Energy’s $3.5 million Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant awarded to Pinellas County late last year. Pinellas County Extension’s application included money to provide education and energy-saving materials to the community at-large.

We are excited to bring the citizens of Pinellas County the tools they need to make significant energy savings in their homes. We have especially been targeting those citizens who would not have ready-access to energy saving information and equipment. The goals of this project include:
  • Providing information and equipment to Pinellas County citizens to help reduce energy consumption in the home.

  • Promoting a significant and quantifiable reduction in energy consumption in Pinellas County

  • Facilitating a significant and quantifiable reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in Pinellas County

Participants in this class will become part of a larger project, and will be contacted no more than three times to track the energy-saving measures they have taken.
