SRQ134710300.logo.USGreenBuildingCouncil__vector_colored_ai8 copy.png MYAKKA RIVER BRANCH MEETING:


Monica Kennedy of Elite Solar Services and Jamie Schlinkmann of Inerjy will present an educational program "Solar and Wind - Technology, Applications and Tax Incentives"  or "How can I get my hands on some of that stimulus money?"

See some basic solar thermal and electric applications for commercial and residential property.   See a Florida company's revolutionary wind turbines.  Recognize forces driving the adoption of renewable energy.  Discussion of simple payback, ROI, incentives, rebates, grants, depreciation, cash flow, leases, power purchase agreements, feed in tariffs, renewable energy dividends, renewable energy credits, green power credits, net metering, grid parity and legislative risk. Is my site even a candidate for renewables?   How much can I buy to maximize the incentives available?  How many LEED points will I get towards certification if I install it?  Where am I going to come up with the initial investment?


All that plus great food provided by Zest Catering, networking opportunities and a chance to be PART OF THE SOLUTION.
