Build Green, Save Money, Be Happy

Updated: May 16, 2023



Update (5/16): The presenter from Senator Whitehouse's office will be... Senator Whitehouse.


Come to a workshop on green buildings, both in your life and in your town.


This workshop will review programs available to homeowners and building owners to offset the cost of going green.


Green, energy efficient and net-zero buildings reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save money on energy bills, but understanding the range of opportunities available for retrofitting buildings and building green from the start can be overwhelming. Presenters from Senator Whitehouse’s office and various state agencies will explain programs available to Rhode Islanders, and provide handouts with information to take home.

Fossil fuels used for heating and lighting our homes and buildings account for about 27% of the state’s greenhouse gas emissions. Climate change requires bold action to reduce these emissions, actions that include transitioning to net-zero homes and infrastructure. This workshop will help you understand how to get started.
