EPB And City Of Chattanooga To Host Energy Efficiency Workshop

Tuesday, March 1, 2016

Following Mayor Andy Berke’s announcement that Chattanooga has accepted the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Challenge, EPB, along with the City of Chattanooga, will host a workshop to share resources available for taking the steps toward maximizing the value of energy usage.

The workshop will be held on Wednesday, from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at EPB’s downtown headquarters building, 10 West Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.

During the event, city representatives will share more information about the Better Buildings Challenge and EPB will orient attending businesses to several programs designed to support companies in making the best use of the energy they consume.

Last year, EPB officials said they helped commercial customers save more than 17-million kilowatt hours of electricity through consultation and efficiency programs. EPB partners with business and home owners, developers and facility managers to pursue opportunities that further enhance the value of electric power through programs like EPB’s free Energy Checkups for homes and businesses.  

“Helping customers with energy efficiency has always been a hallmark of our work at EPB. We are proud to continue that work with the City of Chattanooga and our customers to help build on this community’s long-standing track record as an environmental steward,” said EPB COO David Wade. 

“We are proud to join EPB and business leaders across the city in participating in the Better Buildings Challenge,” said Mayor Berke. “Together we can get more value for the electricity we use while enhancing our environmental stewardship."

Workshop participants will have access to technical expertise from representatives with the City of Chattanooga and EPB. This will be a “brown bag” event, although boxed lunches will be offered for purchase.

Interested parties are asked to RSVP to this free event by visiting https://www.eventbrite.com/e/epb-power-hour-tickets-21642948642 or calling 423-648-1506.
