Friday, April 27
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Reducing cost through efficient use of energy and water is an ongoing task for any owner. Whether you are correcting a defect in a building due to age or natural disaster, conducting ongoing maintenance, or kicking off an upgrade on the class of your property, you should consider whether there are any synergies between your project and the energy savings programs being offered by your local utility companies. In this session, you will learn how to find out about energy savings programs in your city and how the programs work and will hear examples of potential savings in areas such as lighting, HVAC, chillers, insulation, thermostats and more.
