Workshop on 'green' home renovation Nov. 1

Homeowners can learn how a "green renovation" of their home can add value and savings at a networking event Nov. 1.

Experience Green, a nonprofit company that teaches environmental stewardship, will host the event at 5:30 p.m. followed by a workshop at 6 p.m. at the Hilton Head Island library at 11 Beach City Road.

A team from Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, the Hilton Head Area Association of Realtors, Elm Energy Group, the Hilton Head Area Home Builders Association, Palmetto Electric Cooperative and Shah Architecture will present a case study on increased property value, marketability, resource conservation, aesthetic appeal and projected return on investment from a "green" upgrade on a Hilton Head Plantation home.

Admission to the workshop and Network Green is free with advanced online registration.

To register, go to or call 843-868-1567.
