Residents of Lantana, Ocean Ridge, Haverhill, Lake Worth and Boynton Beach have a right to be very, very proud of their communities. They’ve sought private-sector partners, found grants and made energy conservation rebates available to their residents — and now their businesses.
We’re trying to get something going. Something to create jobs. Something to improve the environment and something that makes a difference in our communities.
Our rebate program is coming to a close. We have returned over $108,000 to our residents through it. Our contractors helped engage residents, and our residents made smart purchases for air- conditioning units, insulation and programmable thermostats. And, we’re just getting started.
In May, Florida Green Energy Works, along with Lantana, the Greater Boynton Beach Chamber and the Central Palm Beach County Chamber, is hosting workshops in two locations, aimed at helping businesses and property owners save money.
At these Clean Energy Financing workshops, businesses can learn about a new opportunity, called PACE, or Property-Assessed Clean Energy. PACE provides businesses with up-front funding to help pay for energy- efficient tools and renewable energy.
The Clean Energy Financing workshops will be held May 24 in Boynton Beach and May 25 in Lake Worth. All workshops are from 8-9 a.m., are free, and include breakfast. Seating is limited. Pre-registering is the only way to guarantee your seat.
If you own a business or a building in Palm Beach County, register today at www.FloridaGreenEnergyWorks.com/Workshops. For more information, call 855-FL-WORKS (855-359-6757).
