Loading Events

The Greater Rockville Chamber of Commerce invites you to a free morning breakfast information event on saving money through energy efficiency.  The free event will have representatives from:

  • Pepco’s Energy Savings for Businesses program
  • Montgomery County Green Bank
  • CQI

These representatives will talk about how these programs can be useful to you to reduce the energy consumption of your property or business space and increase your business bottom line or allow you to use your capital for other business purposes.  The programs offer incentives and low-cost loans to help you take on these improvements and reduce your operating costs for the long term.

Additionally, a representative will be there from the Seneca speaking on their experience going green.

Why should you attend?

  • Learn how to save money at your business.  By introducing energy savings improvements you can reduce your operating costs
  • Find out about free funds and low-cost financing to undertake these improvements – Learn what Pepco has available as incentives for your business and what other programs are offered in the county to support costs not covered by the incentives.
  • Explore how you can take steps to reduce your carbon footprint – Help Montgomery County reach its public goal to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Learn how to create a roadmap for greening your operations and enhancing employee engagement.

This would be a good time to hear about these offerings and see if they make sense to you.  You will have a chance to speak with representatives after and get more details.  Or, just come out for coffee and breakfast and network with your peers.
