The EECBG program is a kick-off for many of Michigan's communities toward our long-term goal of boosting our local and regional economies through energy efficiency and conservation projects. As a part of the EECBG program, this workshop will share 'local energy solutions' including renewable energy, funding, strategies, transportation & food, and State resources. There will also be lots of time for questions and a workshop exercise to share innovative ideas for community outreach. Join us and you will be able to better position your community to make investments in future energy savings, simplify your strategies and implementation plans, and have the opportunity to network with other Michigan municipalities and organizations pursuing energy efficiency and conservation projects.
Pat Murphy, Executive Director of Community Solutions & author of Plan C: Community Survival Strategies
Mr. Murphy defines a community as ‘a few thousand’ people living within an area of ‘a few square miles’ … such as a neighborhood, village or district. His strategy identifies ‘small community’ as the solution – one that optimizes both physical and human resources.
