Erie 2030 District November 2019 Workshop
November 21 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm EST
Part of a series of bi-monthly workshops offered by the Erie 2030 District to help educate downtown organizations and businesses about energy efficiency opportunities. Every other month, the District will provide experts and presentations on a variety of efficiency topics, in order to help achieve the District’s overall goal of reducing energy use 50% by the year 2030.
This event will be held at the Erie Wastewater Treatment plant and highlight that facility’s extensive and energy intensive processes. The workshop will also focus on green space and tree canopy development as methods to cool the city, create place and help reduce stormwater runoff. As usual, the workshop will be preceded by a meeting of the Erie 2030 District Advisory Committee at 2 PM.
