about the program

Energy efficiency improvements, on-site renewable energy, community solar gardens, Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing and tax credits – the opportunities for businesses to save energy and money are vast and ever-changing.

In this session we explored how businesses have decided which strategies to pursue, tactics to make the business case, and opportunities for financing.
