SCDN FORUM: Funding for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Projects
April 3 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Please join us for a Sustainable Community Development Network (SCDN) Forum on Tuesday, April 3 from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm at Collier Township to learn how to fund renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in your community. This information and networking forum will discuss how to prepare your organization for energy improvements, what factors to consider, how much money and energy you can save, and where funding is or might soon become available.
Currently, more than 100 cities and towns worldwide get at least 70% of their energy from renewable sources. We’ll learn about opportunities and resources for your organization to explore the ways you could achieve similar progress and savings.
This Forum will be especially valuable for those entities who consume significant quantities of energy, such as large municipal operators and water and/or sewer authorities.
