Whether you want to save the planet or simply save energy, it pays to know a thing or two about sustainable living. It also helps to understand how to stay in your home if somebody else owns it. For the latter issue, attend an evening class designed to help renters and their landlords negotiate. Then, come the weekend, experts on renewable energy will gather for a conference that will provide guidance for homeowners looking to green up their home. Finally, anyone with an eye toward renovating an older home can learn about proposed changes to Salt Lake City’s Historic Preservation Plan.

2010 Utah Renewable Energy Conference
Saturday, March 27
If it’s not your landlord booting you out of house and home you fear but rather the cost of your utility bill, then you won’t want to miss the 2010 Utah Renewable Energy Conference. Participants will discuss a number of ways to live sustainably and bank on it, as well—like a combination of a rebate and tax credits that could cover 50 percent of the cost of getting solar panels on your home or business.
