JustEnergy is partnering with Holy Spirit Episcopal Church to host a one-day workshop to answer your questions in the noisy world of solar energy in Texas today.
The workshop will host speakers from Baylor University, the City of Waco, and other local experts on solar topics. The focus is on the process, the finances, and the benefits - not the technical details. We'll answer the questions you have about adding solar energy to your church or nonprofit:
1. Can solar save me money? Is solar good stewardship? Can solar be a blessing?
2. Why should I care about energy? What do I need to know about everyday energy?
3. What are low-cost options other than solar? (such as insulation, energy audits, HVAC health)
4. How do I fund a solar installation? (government incentives for nonprofits, financing)
May 18th, 9:00 AM – 2:30 PM, Lunch is Included
