Representative Mazzochi Hosting “How to Go Green” Seminar

Westmont… State Representative Deanne Mazzochi (R-Elmhurst) announced an encore presentation of her prior successful “How to Go Green” seminar, this time at the Westmont Public Library on September 17th from 10:00am to 11:30am.  “Many district residents want to know how they can make smart, energy-efficient choices; and responsibly reduce, reuse and recycle.  We were gratified that residents from the first seminar reported that they were able to make use of available energy programs to upgrade their systems and save money.  We look forward to sharing this information throughout our southern end of the district, so that residents can discover ways to reduce their electric bill; whether their home is suited for solar; and what drives taxes and fees in their energy bill.”     

The seminar will take place on Tuesday, September 17, 2019, from 10:00 am – 11:30am at the Westmont Public Library, 428 N Cass Ave, Westmont, IL 60559. 

Rep. Mazzochi’s seminar will include a combination of informational displays and a panel of speakers from ComEd.  Mazzochi, who serves on the Illinois House’s Energy and Environment Committee, explained, “ComEd is the region’s energy gatekeeper; and they have a variety of programs that can help residential customers save money on their energy bill.  ComEd will directly answer residents’ questions about how to reduce their energy footprint; how they can benefit from solar installations; and provide accurate information on everything from energy impact to tax credits to cost recoupment for green energy innovations.”

Illinois’ Clean Energy Jobs Act seeks to incentivize residents to pursue renewable energy sources, but it is difficult to find clear and accurate information on what the Act means. The seminar will include tables with information and displays to help residential customers, including an online calculator that will measure your home’s annual sun exposure; solar panel cost; energy generation; and available tax credits.  Representative Mazzochi will also moderate a question and answer session.

“Energy is an essential part of our daily lives; and it is essential that we plan wisely for our future goals and needs.  We look forward to covering this and more green energy topics in the future,” Mazzochi confirmed.
