On Wednesday, June 1st a group of regional energy and fuel leaders will join together to present an array of topics related to energy efficiency in homes and facilities, renewable energy opportunities, and alternative fuel vehicles, to name a few. Representatives from Black Hills Energy (previously SourceGas) and San Miguel Power Association will present on rebates and efficiency programs available. San Miguel Power Association recently launched an exciting Income Qualified “IQ” Weatherization and Solar Project, which will help qualifying homeowners and renters in the SMPA service area in reducing their electricity costs.

This event will promote the latest opportunities for lighting, weatherization and general commercial and residential building efficiency, and renewable energy opportunities. Recycling, composting, and special disposal will be covered as well as alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure presented by 4CORE, the Four Corners Office for Resource Efficiency based in Durango.

This forum will help them learn about building efficiency to aid them in saving money for their companies and clients and to reduce their building’s footprint on the environment.

The event will be fast paced with plenty of time for audience questions and discussion.
