Seminars cover green building at Lake Tahoe

LAKE TAHOE ” The city of South Lake Tahoe and Sierra Pacific Power Co. are offering two free seminars on green building for builders, architects, engineers, designers and owner-builders.

“Certified Green” will take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon March 26 at Quality Inn & Suites, 3838 Lake Tahoe Blvd. Those at the workshop will learn what it takes to build a certified green home.
