Erie Emerging 2030 District Hosts Energy Efficiency Workshop Aug. 16

Emerging Erie 2030 District will host an August 16 Energy Efficiency Workshop at the Nash Library, Gannon University, 619 Sassafras Street in Erie from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.
The emerging Erie 2030 District is a collaborative, nationally recognized, but local community of high performance buildings that aim to dramatically reduce energy and water consumption, transportation emissions, and improve indoor air quality while increasing competitiveness in the business environment and owner's returns on investment.
This is the first in a series of bi-monthly workshops offered by the Erie Emerging 2030 District to help educate downtown organizations and businesses about energy efficiency opportunities.
Every other month, the District will provide experts and presentations on a variety of efficiency topics, in order to help achieve the District’s overall goal of reducing energy use 50 percent by the year 2030.
The first workshop will be held at the recently renovated (including a green roof) Gannon Nash Library. The session will include the following presentations, as well as a building tour:
-- What is the Erie Emerging 2030 District? Guy McUmber, Green Building Alliance
-- Act 129 Electrical Equipment Rebate Program: Ron Butch, Sodexo
-- PA Small Business Advantage Grants: Geoff Bristow, PADEP
-- Nash Library Energy Efficient and Green Renovation: Ken Brundage, Library Director and Dr. Steve Ropski, Professor, Biology
The workshop is free to attend but registration is required. Click Here to register or for more information.
The session will also be preceded by a meeting of the District 2030 Advisory Committee from 2:30 to 3:00. Anyone interested in becoming a committee member, or in the District in general, is welcome to attend.
The Erie Emerging 2030 District, a Pittsburgh Green Building Alliance strategic innovation, is made possible through the generous support of these sponsors-- Total Energy Resources, LLC and WGL Energy.
Philadelphia and Pittsburgh both have 2030 District Programs.
