Sonoma County offers free resiliency home improvement workshops

A series of six free webinar workshops will be offered for those interested in learning about the benefits of improvements that will make their homes more resilient.

The series covers a wide range of topics, such as evaluating energy use, making a project plan, funding projects, solar photovoltaics and battery storage, electrification, indoor air quality, wildfire safety, and understanding heat pumps for healing and cooling.

Presentations will include information about the county’s property-based financing program and other resources, such as rebates, no-cost installations and incentives to get projects completed.
