> Come work on our deep energy retrofit barnraising this Saturday in  
> Framingham.  Our work will help bring a middle-class home closer to  
> net-zero energy use.  This event can help trail-blaze a way for  
> those who aren’t millionaires to radically lower their energy use  
> through community help.  Only a few more spaces left for  
> volunteers.  Car-pooling is possible.
>
> The work starts at 9 and goes to 5, but you can come and go as  
> needed. Tour the work that’s been done so far and talk to some of  
> the experts in the field.  Lunch is provided.
> Contact Jason Taylor for the address. 617 441 0614.

> See an actual energy bill decrease over the years, instead of  
> increase. It can be inspiring. The attached Schulman.xls shows a  
> home’s energy bills over the last 6 years.  There is a 42% decrease  
> overall in heat and electricity, along with notes about what work  
> was done and some of the approximate costs.   The home is detached,  
> has 4 residents and is 100 years old.  The owner is trying hard to  
> get the energy use down close to PassiveHouse standards as cheaply  
> as possible to demonstrate large energy savings in old buildings  
> don’t have to break the bank.

> If anyone else has energy bills they are proud of, please send them  
> to us.  We want to showcase the best to inspire all of us.
