Buffet Breakfast: 7:30 – 8:00 AM
Program: 8:00 AM – 9:30 AM
Join us on Wednesday, November 9th from 7:30 – 9:00 AM at the Martindale Country Club in Auburn as we invite an architect and an engineer to provide us with a walk through the world of deep energy retrofits. With so much of Maine developed with aging building stock and the ever increasing cost of utility bills, what is a building owner or developer to do? This breakfast event will explore the landscape of deep energy retrofits, drilling down into the reasons for a systematic approach in looking at a building’s energy usage and the sort of strategies that an owner or developer can adopt when “tuning up” a building.
Meet the panelists:
