Look no further, the energy pros on Middle Tennessee Electric’s Energy Services team have answers to these questions and more; and they have scheduled a series of virtual energy efficiency workshops called “MTE’s Energy Academy” starting Thursday, May 6.

All sessions will be virtual and held at 12 p.m. and then again at 6 p.m.

Recordings of each session will be available online after the series is finalized. 

“We think these “how-to” sessions will go a long way to provide meaningful ways to conserve energy and save money; we have an excellent line-up of subject matter experts to guide the discussion,” said Tim Suddoth, DER Coordinator for MTE. “During the sessions, there will be interactive features that will allow people to ask questions and receive answers, and we will also provide contact information for MTE’s team.”

There will be a drawing for various door prizes at both the 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. sessions each week.
