Expo to showcase energy efficiency products
Building and mechanical contractors, architects, real estate brokers, property managers and residents can learn about the newest products for energy efficiency and renewable energy at the 2015 Energy Smart Contractor Expo.
The half-day expo will feature suppliers and installers showing energy efficiency and renewable energy products, and energy utilities explaining their incentive programs.
The expo also includes nine 30-minute workshops on LED lighting, solar energy, heating, cooling, refrigeration, heat pumps, automation, controls, radon mitigation and integrating energy savings into property management.
The event is set for 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, April 2, at the Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs. The $17 eExpo pass includes workshops, breakfast and lunch. To register, visit http://www.GarfieldCleanEnergy.org.
Garfield Clean Energy, CLEER, CORE and Energy Smart Colorado are hosting the expo.
In addition to workshops for contractors, expo hosts have invited elected officials and civic leaders in Garfield, Pitkin and Eagle counties to participate in a regional roundtable discussion on energy efficiency and economic development.
The roundtable, set for 1 to 2:30 p.m., will look at energy efficiency programs working today in the three counties, and consider how more regional collaboration could yield bigger results.
“This expo is about building awareness of the value of energy efficiency in the marketplace,” said Maisa Metcalf, an energy coach with CLEER and expo organizer.
The Energy Smart Contractor Expo is sponsored by Holy Cross Energy, Xcel Energy, SourceGas, Sunsense Solar, One Source Lighting, City of Aspen Utilities, All-Phase Electric Supply Co., Quality Solar, Glenwood Springs Electric and the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association.
