Professor Timmer presents “Energy Stewardship at Home”

April 18, 2011

Simple changes in how we use energy in the home can lead to significant financial savings.

Dr. Kevin Timmer, professor of engineering at Dordt College, will present “Energy Stewardship at Home,” featuring several energy conservation practices and renewable energy technologies that could be done in any home. Special attention will be given to the benefits and the science behind solar hot water heating systems. The presentation will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, in SB101 in the Dordt College Science and Technology Center.

Following the presentation, Timmer will lead a tour of the solar hot water system, which was the subject of the study and is installed at Dordt College. Those unable to attend the presentation are welcomed to join for the tour beginning in the lobby of the Science and Technology Center at 8 p.m.

The project was funded by the Dordt College engineering department in conjunction with a demonstration grant provided by the Iowa Energy Center.
