Lancaster PA Home performance school in the works

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Select Professionals

Here's a quote from Tamasin Sterner, Southeast PA's original home performance expert.  Hot off the presses!

 

"Coming in 2008:  Home Performance Contractor's School.  A. Tamasin Sterner, founder of Pure Energy, will be opening a training facility for contractors to learn: how to properly insulate and air seal homes; how to install residential solar and wind systems; how to improve heating and cooling system performance for energy savings; how to do energy audits; how to conserve water.  The school will serve as a sustainable community center when classes are not in session.  For more information, contact Pure Energy at 717-293-8990"

I asked Tamasin to expand on where she'll be basing her school:

"The school will be in Lancaster City or close to the city.  The plan is to have a career path for people who want to be Home Performance Contractors.  This will be like a Vo-Tech school approach and may be a two year plan.  There will also be an approx 6 week course for existing trades people who want to become Home Performance Contractors.  For example, there may be an HVAC Technician or a Home Inspector who wants to learn Building Science and apply the energy conservation and efficiency and 'green' technologies to his/her business."
 
Thanks, Tamasin, for the heads-up!  I think this will be first of it's kind in Pennsylvania.

Excellant Post Jeff - deserves some comments.

Information should be sent to Community Colleges around the country such as Grand Rapids Community College which has a technical school for Construction, HVAC, etc. GRCC has a Renewable Energy Expert Series in process.

They have set up partnerships with Universities for different programs -- I wonder if it would be possible for them to set a partnership up with Tamasin's School. Wouldn't that be cool?

Wow, this is really fantastic stuff!!  I agree with Mary, these places should be cooperating with colleges, I bet they might even get some funding or corporate sponsors out of it.  Not that they are looking for that or anything but this is amazing!!

Keep us in the loop Jeff!!
