Looking for ways to save energy and cut your monthly utility bills? Both homeowners and renters are invited to attend a Home Weatherization Workshop on Wednesday, October 15th.

CNO is proud to partner with Our Power, a South Minneapolis coalition focusing on community solutions to sustainable energy use, to host this neighborhood event.
