Household Energy: How to Save Thousands
Presented by Matt Simerson
Household Energy: where our energy comes from, what we use it for, how much it costs, and how to prune thousands of dollars from your annual energy expenses. I will cover our energy sources here in the PNW, energy storage, electric vehicles, type of insulation and what each type is best for, the cost effectiveness of insulation, home appliance efficiency, and home automation.
BIO: I have an educational background in mechanical engineering and transitioned to software engineering by vocation. I am a builder by nature. I build software and compute platforms for $work and I build houses, cabinets, cars, and other things for fun. I volunteer with the Shoreline Garden Club, Friends of Llandover Wood, coaching competition math teams, and by weaning our household off fossil fuel consumption.
