Please join us to hear Jeremy Epstein, Energy Efficiency and Finance Specialist for the EnergySmart Program, discuss financing energy efficiency and renewable energy home upgrades. Some of the topics that Jeremy will be covering include financial lending failures and successes, the anatomy of public/private parternships in comparison to the EnergySmart Program, and EnergySmart program successes and uptake, today and in the future. Afterwards, there will be a question and answer session for all energy financing questions.
