What homeowner wouldn’t like to live in a house that produces as much energy as it uses during the year? Such houses, termed “Zero Energy” homes (and their precursors, “Zero Energy Ready” homes) will be explained during a seminar on Friday, September 14, 2018, from 7:30-10:30 a.m. at The Innevation Center University of Nevada, Reno, 450 Sinclair St. The public is invited but a $10 registration fee is required.

With mPowered Commercial, NV Energy provides energy management technology to businesses including smart thermostats that can be controlled via an online site manager, independent of a company’s Wi-Fi service.
