This program will help GWC participants set their plans for moving ahead in the GWC with resources and financial savings.   The program features presentations from past GWC participants who have demonstrated significant energy savings through their investments and employee engagement activities.  Panelists will discuss ways of offsetting the costs of conducting energy audits with ACT 129 rebates for improved efficiencies in electrical equipment as well as demand response programs.  Presenters will show how to formulate a financial plan and set expectations on how long it will take to achieve payback on such investments.
