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.
