The Home Efficiency Expo is once again coming to the Nob Hill Supper Club. The free event, which is sponsored by Allamakee-Clayton Electric Cooperative, Hawkeye REC and Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TEC), will be held Thursday, March 18, from 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event is open to homeowners, contractors and builders, and focuses on what consumers can do to make their homes more energy efficient.

Guest speaker Ken Keune, a CPA with Hacker, Nelson & Co., P.C., will speak on the topic of federal tax credits for energy efficiency and help answer some of the common questions consumers have about the government's tax credit program.

Another session will feature Building Knowledge, Inc.'s President Ed Von Thoma. Building Knowledge's mission is to cost effectively improve the quality, comfort, durability and energy efficiency of homes by educating the building industry about innovative products and new building trends and techniques.

In addition to the two speakers, representatives from manufacturers of energy efficient building materials, HVAC and lighting systems will have booths at the event.

"Whether you are building a new house or remodeling an old one, this is a great event for people to learn more about energy-efficient products and techniques," said Ted Kjos, TEC Amarketing manager. "It provides an opportunity to talk one-on-one with speakers and vendors to find out specifics regarding your personal project."

Nob Hill Supper Club is five miles north of Decorah, Iowa, along Hwy. 52. For a schedule of events, visit www.tec.coop.
