November 28, 2009

Energy Innovation CorridorBecoming Green Stewards: How Nonprofits and Building Owners Can Protect the Environment and Cut Costs through Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, organized by The Minnesota Project, was held on Tuesday, November 10, 2009 from 1:30 PM – 4:00 PM at the Wilder Center in St. Paul, and was a great success!

Attendees learned how to reduce their organization’s impact on the earth, and soften the impact of energy costs on their bottom line. They learned how to take the next steps on their own and with energy-saving programs from utilities, nonprofits, and other service providers. They also learned more about the Energy Innovation Corridor, and had the opportunity to discuss next steps with energy experts and network with other nonprofit and building management professionals.
