The Resourceful Kansas program is conducting its last Energy Efficiency/Renewable Energy Seminar on October 24, 2012. Riley County has saved more than $15,000 in taxpayers’ dollars on energy costs, and most of the energy consumed at its facility is now generated by on-site renewable energy. The Riley County Public Works Facility is leading a grant team to provide free energy efficiency and renewable energy services to several categories of eligible organizations, including state, county and local government organizations; unified school districts and private schools; colleges, universities, and technical schools; agribusinesses; and non-profit organizations.
Resourceful Kansas, funded through the U.S. Department of Energy, is a program whose mission is to “to engage communities throughout the state of Kansas in making a fundamental shift toward a less energy intensive, more efficient economy.” The application for Resourceful Kansas is live at www.ResourcefulKansas.org. Eligible organizations can attend a one-day seminar in Riley County to receive a hands-on tour of four different types of wind turbines, solar LED lighting, solar radiant floor heating systems, and more. The next and last seminar is scheduled for October 24, 2012, and is open to all eligible Kansas organizations, regardless of location. A portion of the organizations attending the seminar will be selected for a free energy assessment. Be sure to read the ‘application info’ tab and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
