Many homeowners are looking into ways to keep the lights on during power outages. In response, the Marin County Community Development Agency Sustainability Team and the Bay Area Regional Energy Network are presenting a free webinar on home battery storage, energy efficiency, and programs that can help pay for those projects.

The webinar will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, November 14, and will include a basic overview of battery backup technology, cost information and return on investment, comparisons between traditional gas generators and battery backup systems, how battery systems work with solar installations, and additional information on home energy efficiency and rebate programs. While some of the program is specific to Marin County residents, most of the content is universal and all are encouraged to attend.

A repeat program will be offered on December 9. Register for a Zoom link. Click “Select a Date” to complete the free registration.
