ASC Community Partnerships hosts free high performance building

(08-04-2009)

A free workshop, hosted by ASC Community Partnerships, promoting high-energy-performance building is from 1:00 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13, in room 309 of the Student Union Building located on the Adams State College campus. Representatives from the Governor's Energy Office (GEO) will increase awareness of the GEO's High Performance Building Program, which aims to maximize energy efficiency and renewable energy potential in public building new construction and major renovation projects.

Participants will gain a greater understanding of funding incentives for high performance building; learn strategies and techniques for improving energy efficiency; and discover resources available through the GEO program for projects located in the San Luis Valley.

Building owners, planners, designers, contractors, maintenance and operations professionals are encouraged to attend.

The Governor's Energy Office, first created in 2007, was established to lead Colorado to a new energy economy, heightening the state's economy, preserving its environment, and paving the way towards energy independence. GEO supports high performance building in Colorado, specifically for projects required to meet the state-mandated LEED Gold standard.
