Doug Rye to share energy efficiency methods

First Electric members will be able to ask questions of the “King of Caulk and Talk” when energy efficiency expert Doug Rye speaks at the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton. The free seminar will begin at 6:30 p.m. May 14 in the Fine Arts Gallery.

Rye will teach simple, feasible, commonsense and proven methods that will make both new and existing homes more efficient and that can mean more comfort and lower utility bills.

Rye hosts "Home Remedies," a show focusing on energy efficiency that airs on radio stations in several states. The licensed architect is a consultant for the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas and writes a monthly column for Arkansas Living magazine on ways cooperative members can reduce their energy bills. He lives in Saline County. For more information on Doug Rye, visit the “Energy Efficiency” section of
