Winter Statewide Energy Tour Series
December 4, 2014, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Binghamton University (Room Location To Be Determined)
We are honored to be hosting the Winter Statewide Energy Tour Series with NYSERDA at our December session. Taking place in 10 cities, this tour is a series of interactive, informational sessions in each of the REDC regions designed to increase awareness of New York State's clean energy policies and community aggregation initiatives like NY Prize, a first-in-the-nation microgrid competition.
New York's energy leadership team, State officials, and industry leaders will engage with local stakeholders across the State in areas impacted by severe weather events to discuss ways communities can reduce energy costs, promote clean energy and help build a more resilient, reliable, and affordable energy infrastructure.
