Developing technology being used by Okotoks to reduce homes' carbon footprint
As the holiday season approaches and homes light up like Santa's workshop, energy costs will spiral to top of mind for budget-conscious homeowners.
"Certainly, energy efficiency is always on the radar, but even more so during this economy and at this time of year," said Dawn Smith, sustainability co-ordinator for the Town of Okotoks.
The good news is hope is on the way for homeowners who want to manage their energy costs thanks to ongoing research at the University of Calgary.
