Join us for the Energy Initiatives and Renewable Infrastructures- NYSERDA workshop on Saturday, March 22 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in Meeting Room 5. Sharon Griffith of NYSERDA will be one of the panelists. NYSERDA works to advance the goals of the Green Jobs Green New York (GJGNY) and the System Benefits Charge (SBC) Programs by developing a workforce equipped to implement energy efficiency, weatherization, green building principles, renewable energy and advanced technology system design and installation. In 2011 NYSERDA partnered with community based organizations (CBO) to deploy GJGNY statewide and penetrate hard to reach markets. In this workshop you can hear how the CBOs, non- profit organizations and entrepreneurs have taken this opportunity to train underemployed youth and adults and develop career pathways, to meet the demand of this growing energy efficiency industry. Maybe their models can lead to similar programs in your neighborhood.
