  1. The Energy Summit should be encouraging all parts of the county including residential home owners and buildings to be part of the solution to the smart energy usage and energy generation through solar, wind and geothermal projects at the home level.

    1. The Department of Environmental Protection thanks you for your feedback and interest in the Montgomery County Energy Summit and has supplied the following response to your comment. This event is hosted by the nonprofit U.S. Green Building Council local branch, and similar to last year's event, the focus is on advances in energy efficiency, renewable energy, and conservation. With the recently passed Benchmarking Law, there is a focus on resources to help building owners comply and improve their energy performance. For an event with greater concentration on residential-scale projects, I would encourage you to check out the Montgomery County GreenFest scheduled for March 28th at Montgomery College - Takoma Park. There will be sessions on residential efficiency and renewables, as well as sessions on water conservation, waste reduction, and other sustainability efforts.
