High temperatures are here, and that means extra stresses on the electrical grid: air conditioners increasing demand and transmission lines losing efficiency. What’s this got to do with coal usage? And how can you help reduce demand? 

Join Recycling Coordinator Jane Wilch and Climate Action Coordinator Sarah Gardner for an interactive discussion of some cool solutions for these seasonal challenges, including why this might be the best time of year to think about a heat pump for your home.

  • What: “Speaking of…Summer Energy Use” Online Discussion
  • When: Noon, Monday, July 18, 2022
  • Register here: Zoom registration 

As with previous “Speaking of” discussions, this will be a casual conversation without slides or charts. It’s a chance to ask questions and learn some useful information along the way.

Questions? Email Sarah-Gardner@iowa-city.org or Jane-Wilch@iowa-city.org.
