Two R-5 Workshops Planned

October 5, 2010

As part of the effort to boost demand for high-performance windows, the Department of Energy is hosting two regional workshops this month for the R-5 Windows/Low-E Storm Windows Volume Purchase Program.  Both are targeted to builders, contractors, public housing authorities, weatherization agencies and others, as well as window manufacturer partners.

The Pacific Northwest workshop is scheduled for October 11 at Northwest Natural Gas in Portland, Ore.  The Mid-Atlantic regional workshop is scheduled for October 20 at the Free Library of Philadelphia in Philadelphia.  

Both sessions begin at 2 p.m. with a three-hour workshop focusing on the benefits of R-5 products, followed by an exhibit session scheduled from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. 

Those interested in obtaining more information or registering for either event can contact Jason Bogovich at or 410/953-6257.
