The Bucks County Commissioners join the County Business Development Department in announcing the continuation of the Fulton Bank Financial Series in September with the event: “A Business Case for Successful Energy Projects.” This workshop will be held on Wednesday, September 21, 2011, at the Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce, 409 Hood Blvd., Fairless Hills,PA 19030. The program begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. and concludes at 10:30 a.m.
Last year, commercial buildings consumed roughly 20 percent of all energy in the U.S. economy. Improving energy efficiency in our buildings can create jobs, save money, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and make our air cleaner.
To get Bucks County businesses to go green and pursue energy efficiency projects, David E. Welsh, Director, Smart Energy Initiative Advisory Services, will discuss the development of an energy project, the feasibility analysis, technical specifications, government rebates and incentives, and the PA SREC (Solar Renewable Energy Credits) program. The Smart Energy Initiative offers comprehensive energy strategy consulting services to help businesses reduce energy consumption, costs, and environmental impact.
Joining Mr. Welsh will be Chuck Evans, Managing Director, South Eastern Economic Development Company of PA (SEEDCOPA). Mr. Evans will present financing options, including SBA financing and the new EnergyWorks loan program available to businesses. SEEDCOPA is a 25-year-old Certified Development Company offering the SBA 504 Loan and support for government guaranteed lending programs.
Pre-registration is requested due to limited seating; however, there is no charge to attend the event. To register for the workshop, please contact the County of Bucks Business Development Administrator, Sonia Smith, at 215-345-3839 or at email@example.com.
