Learn How to Finance Your Building Upgrades Through Energy Savings Improvement Programs (ESIPs)

May 27, 2014 -- 1:00 - 3:00 PM  -  REGISTER

Are you leaving money on the table?  Energy efficiency is one of the best ways municipalities and school districts can save money and tax dollars.  A new financing tool, called an Energy Savings Improvement Program (ESIP), allows New Jersey municipalities and school districts to leverage energy savings resulting from installing a package of energy efficiency measures to cover upfront costs. Learn how your organization can take advantage of this innovative financing tool to complete necessary large-scale building upgrades, and significantly reduce its energy costs.

Speak with experts from the NJ BPU and hear about the Ocean Township School District’s experience. 

The Department of Community Affairs has approved CEUs for Clerks - 2 hours in finance, and Purchasing Agents - 2 hours in procurement procedures.  Public Works Managers - 2 hours for government; County and Municipal Finance Officers - 2 hours, financial/debt management.
