(Cassopolis, MI) – Mobile and manufactured homes represent a fraction of America’s housing stock, but consume a disproportionately large amount of energy.
Midwest Energy Cooperative will host free training sessions for general contractors to address the challenges and unique details confronted in retrofitting mobile and manufactured homes. The training is ultimately intended to help homeowners better manage energy costs. Sessions will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 28 at the Cooperative’s Adrian District Office (1610 E. Maumee) and on Thursday, March 29 at the Cassopolis Office (901 E. State Street).
Any local contractor is invited to attend. Specific emphasis will be placed on insulation and weatherization efforts for mobile and manufactured homes. Midwest is partnering with the Wisconsin Energy Conservation Corporation in sponsoring these programs. Both programs are free, but space is limited.
