Originally published May 1, 2014

On Thursday, May 8, APPA’s Demonstration of Energy & Efficiency Developments (DEED) program will hold a webinar on a recently completed grant, "Better Building Practices Toolkit for New Residential Construction,"from 2 to 3 p.m., Eastern time. 

This webinar will discuss the Nebraska Public Power District’s project to design and construct a high efficiency home, built exclusively around current building science best practices. The project's goal was to show that affordable, proven technologies exist that can dramatically increase a building's energy efficiency.

NPPD has created a brochure and video to educate construction vendors and customers about better construction practices. These materials can be found on the utility's website.

The webinar will be offered at no cost to DEED program members, $89 for APPA members and $179 for non-members. The webinar is worth 0.1 continuing education units and 1.0 professional development hour credits.
