CWLP's free Smart Solutions Workshops are designed to provide residential customers with: information about energy-saving weatherization techniques; tips on how to make small do-it-yourself efficiency improvements; and advice about efficiency choices that will result in increased comfort and lower energy and water costs. The Workshops also give customers an opportunity to offer their thoughts about efficiency programs currently offered by CWLP or that they believe the utility should consider. The workshops are normally offered several times each year. See the current year's schedule of Smart Solutions Workshops.

Who Can Attend the Workshops and What Will They Learn?
The public workshops are open to all CWLP residential customers. Customers interested in attending a public workshop must pre-register. Space is limited so early pre-registration is advised.

Workshop participants learn tips and tricks to maximize home comfort and convenience while minimizing their energy and water costs. Emphasis is placed on efficiency improvements that the participants can make themselves for little or no cost. Participants also have the opportunity to talk one-on-one with the CWLP Energy Experts about specific home efficiency problems they are encountering.

At the end of the workshop, each participant receives a free home efficiency "starter kit" (containing a caulk gun, tube of caulk, flexible plastic storm window kit, outlet and switchplate gaskets, and caulking cord) and/or a water conservation kit.
