About this event

If you care about climate change, join us to discuss and understand how our commercial facilities can be part of the energy solution.

SaLisa Berrien and Susan Gladwin will speak on what it means to put our buildings on the grid, teach you actionable steps to enable technology to reduce energy waste and manage carbon built into our environment, discuss how energy sharing advances equity and rights, and understand why we need to know more about behind-the-meter resources.
