2012 Eco-Loco Arizona Renewable Energy Conference, Prescott Valley, AZ

The Town of Prescott Valley will be sponsoring the inaugural Eco-Loco Arizona Renewable Energy Conference, which will be held on Friday, September 7th, 2012. The purpose of this conference is to bring Arizona communities of all sizes together to learn about ongoing efforts in the development of renewable energy resources statewide. Keynote Speaker, Leisa Brug of the Governor’s Office of Energy Policy, will discuss what has been achieved so far, and what we can all do together to maximize renewable energy resources for the benefit of our communities, our State, and our nation. More information and registration instructions for this conference are available for download

Breakout sessions will be offered in four tracks, with speakers from both the public and the private sector. The “Projects” track will feature successful projects across the state and discuss the partnerships that made them work, while updates on employment opportunities and job training programs will be provided in the “Jobs and Training” track. Learn how your community can address administrative issues relating to renewable energy projects in the “Codes and Inspections” track, and how to find the money to make it all happen in the “Funding” track. Sessions begin at 11 am, but be sure to join us for coffee and conversation at 9 am, courtesy of Trader Joe’s.

ASU and the State of Arizona were successful in getting the Arizona Rooftop Challenge funded through the DOE’s Sunshot Solar Initiatives program. The Arizona Rooftop Challenge Committee will offer a number of seminars and workshops related to streamlining permitting, planning and zoning, and financing processes to lessen the burden of compliance on residents and staff alike. Get updates on how this pilot project is progressing and how it can ultimately benefit your community.
