The challenges and opportunities of energy management will be discussed, along with the latest technologies available including: lighting, HVAC, solar, back-up generation and more. Participants will learn from a series of experts, how using energy efficiently can help them do more with less.

With energy costs expected to rise 40% over the next year, energy conservation is no longer optional. This seminar will demonstrate how companies can use energy to reduce overhead, enhance their bottom line and improve environmental conditions in factories, warehouses, office buildings-- all types of commercial and institutional facilities.

There is enormous awareness about environmental issues today and becoming an environmentally-friendly company has taken on new meaning. A well-designed upgrade can provide a business with energy savings while paying off the capital investment for new equipment.

According to Herbert M. Unger, Vice President of The First Energy Group, "The payback period on something as straightforward as a lighting retrofit can be under a year and we typically see savings between 50 and 60%. There's really no reason not to go green anymore"

"Go Green to Save Green" seminar participants will learn about energy trends and recent history; gain an environmental and operational appreciation of the benefits to curbing energy use; and align expectations of energy savings potential with industry benchmarks. They will also learn how to identify specific areas to examine and analyze for energy improvements, plus learn about financing options available through government and private organizations.

In addition to executives from The First Energy Group, planned participants include: Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance (NEPA), PPL Corporation and the Sustainable Energy Fund.
