Exciting things are happening this spring at Sustainable Flatbush! We are assembling a Neighborhood Energy Forum to take place on Saturday, March 20th, 2010.
Energy Efficiency and Affordability Where We Live
We are faced with the pressing challenge of reducing our resource use and greenhouse gas emissions, but how can we make that happen? We all know it’s going to take more than just changing our lightbulbs (although that is a great first step!), but the problem lies in the cost of retrofitting our older buildings or installing renewable energy.
The Neighborhood Energy Forum is bringing together all the people in the chain of making energy efficiency and alternative energy happen here and now. If you have the desire to start an energy efficiency project in your building–whether big or small–come learn about how you can do it! Find out how to get funding from all kinds of programs, and meet the contractors who can help you take the first steps.
The Forum’s long-term objective is to create a model block in Flatbush where the majority of homes and apartment buildings have lowered their energy use and costs, inspiring others to do the same. Together we can decrease energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions and increase New York City’s overall energy efficiency.
You can look forward to speaking with representatives from Sustainable Flatbush, National Grid, Solar One, NYSERDA, and many other energy experts. Our elected officials will be on hand as well to let you know what they are doing to meet our energy efficiency goals.
If you are interested in sponsoring the event we offer a range of sponsorship opportunities that can help your business or organization reach its core audience and increase its visibility. Check it out!
We look forward to seeing you there!
WHEN: Saturday, March 20th 9:30am – 2pm
WHERE: Brooklyn College Student Center, Campus Road and E. 27th Street, 5th floor
