Go Green to Save Green Educational Forum
Join us to hear from energy and building experts on how you can cut energy costs by adopting green technologies!
Saturday, November 12, 9:30 - 12:30pm
Siouxland Downtown Library, Meeting Rooms A & B
The "Go Green to Save Green" forum aims to break down the numbers on how much Sioux Falls households and business owners stand to save by adopting green technologies like electric vehicles, rooftop solar, heat pumps, and efficient buildings. We will hear from local experts in the energy and building industry, as well as local homeowners who have already made the switch, to walk us through what that process looks like.
The costs of clean energy and other climate-friendly technologies have come steadily down over the past decade. In many cases, these technologies are close to cost-competitive with their traditional fossil-fueled counterparts, and they help consumers save money on energy costs in the long run. With the passage of new federal incentives like the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), making the switch to green technologies is about to become more affordable than ever.
