Here’s an energy challenge!

Need to cut back on your energy bills? Are you putting thousands into driving costs and still getting nowhere?

Find out how you can make your home more comfortable, save money and reduce emissions that cause smog and climate change. Plan to attend a Lunch-and-Learn session for York employees at noon, Feb. 11 or 12 in Room 213, Arboretum Lane Parkade (Parking Structure II). Pizza will be served.

The Lunch-and-Learn sessions are organized by York University as part of its commitment to sustainability, in partnership with a Toronto Public Health program called 20/20 The Way to Clean Air.

The program challenges you to reduce your energy use – and costs – at home and on the road by 20 per cent. Order a free 20/20 Planner and receive clear information on how to reach your goal and be eligible for prizes.

During the sessions participants will have a chance to meet representatives from Green$aver, the home energy experts who provide the EnerGuide for Houses audit service at a discounted rate to York employees. By having a Green$aver audit, you can become eligible for up to $4,000 through the Green$aver Home Rewards program.

You’ll also learn how to cut energy costs on the road by making cleaner and more economical choices for your commute to work. Representatives from the Black Creek Regional Transportation Management Association (BCRTMA) will be on hand to inform you about the following services available free for York University staff:

  • a Web-based carpool-matching service 
  • information on transit and cycling options  
  • a Guaranteed Ride Home service in case of emergency
