Gexpro, Shelton, Conn., is holding “Energy Summits” across the United States to educate electrical contractors, facility managers, building owners and government buyers how best to achieve lower energy costs with green technologies. The sessions focus on the latest advancements in energy efficiencies, new green product solutions and services, and ways to benefit from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), utility rebates and state government programs.

The one-and-a-half day summits cover a range of topics: energy-efficient lighting installations and retrofits, solar-energy design and applications, and specific power-quality solutions that can increase the performance, lifespan and efficiency of all electrical products in a commercial or institutional application. Speakers come from Gexpro and leading manufacturers. Environmental specialists will also speak.

Besides product technologies and solutions, each summit includes information on maximizing the benefits of the ARRA, explaining how the stimulus works, its funding requirements, and how Gexpro can act as a resource in helping attendees take advantage of the plan’s rebates and tax incentives.
The summits have been held so far in San Diego, upstate New York and Atlanta, with plans for additional sessions in Dallas and Chicago. Visit www.gexpro.com for more information.
