Akron Green Events in August - E4S

Two major green events are taking place this August in Akron. I would like to encourage all my local readers to attend. At one event you will have the opportunity to discover what is available locally in terms of going solar and at the other event, discover products and services that can help you build or renovate in green sustainable ways. Both events are free and open to the public.

August 13th is the Akron Entrepreneurs for Sustainability meeting (Info below)
August 16th is the NEOhio Green Energy Expo at the J S Knight center. (info in the following post)

  • What are solar myths and realties?

Join the E4S Network on August 13 as we explore when solar makes sense and cents for commercial and industrial applications in our region. What are the solar myths, realities, and resources available? E4S has asked local architects, installers and end-users to join us to share their experience and stories on commercial solar projects. We’ll talk about photovoltaics, solar thermal hot water heating and passive solar technology.

What do you need to know to be solar ready and understand the solar technology options for your business?

Green Energy Ohio will also join us to share a preview of their August 16th Northeast Ohio Green Energy Expo.

Speakers will include:
