UO Students Learn Energy Saving Tips

EUGENE, Ore. — A new program is teaching University of Oregon students how to save money on their utility bills.

Auditors with the Student and Community Outreach for Residential Efficiency ($CORE) program will visit students who live off campus, inspect their home and give them suggestions on ways they can reduce their energy use. They’ll even provide free devices to help them do this such as CLFs, weather stripping, pipe insulation and energy-saving showerheads.

Track Town Pizza, one of the program’s sponsors, will give a free pizza to households that have more than half of its tenants there at the time of the assessment. Jerry’s Home Improvement is providing weatherization materials and EWEB provided a grant to $CORE.

The program hopes to assess 75 off-campus student homes by the end of fall term.
