This training is organized by PG&E and is offered in collaboration with County of Sonoma Energy and Sustainability Division and Sonoma Clean Power.
Rebuilding? Before you build, plan for your home's energy efficiency, comfort and a lower utility bill. We invite you to join the Sonoma County Energy and Sustainability Division for a free workshop at Rincon Valley Library.

Provided by PG&E in collaboration with the County's General Services Energy and Sustainability Division, the MI-BEST is a series of five consecutive days of training designed to be taken in sequence. MI-BEST joins the art of construction to the science of energy and moisture management. It provides building professionals an opportunity to learn and practice techniques that might otherwise take many residential projects to experience and troubleshoot. Participants are encouraged to attend the entire series but individual sign-ups by day and topic are allowed. Visit www.pge.com/energyclasses for more information.
