BCC to Host NESEA Green Building Open House
Sep 28, 2011
Berkshire Community College (BCC) will  host a NESEA Green Building Open House (GBOH) at  its MassGreen Weatherization Lab, Saturday, October 1, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The Weatherization Lab is located in the Stanley building at the Paterson Field House on BCC's main campus. The Lab is used for a 78-hour hands-on Weatherization Installer Class. Full-size mocks-up are used to train students to be professional air-sealers and insulation installers. Tom Renton, the Weatherization Installer instructor, will give tours of the props and explain the course.

The Northeast Sustainable Energy Association's annual Green Buildings Open House is the largest sustainable energy event in the Northeast. Homes, businesses, and schools invite the public inside to investigate the renewable technologies and green building features being employed on site. Last year, more than 10,000 people toured close to 500 sites from Maine to Pennsylvania, and this year's event is expected to be even bigger!

Homes in the Berkshires will be part of this year's Green Buildings Open House. To get a list of locations in our area, or to learn more about building features or fuel types, go to search the NESEA GBOH database.
