Will County Land Use Department to host Energy Summit for Local Schools

     The Will County Land Use Department, will be hosting an Energy Summit for schools personnel in Will County from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 20 at William E. Young School in Homer Glen. The event is specifically designed for teachers, maintenance staff, administrators and school board members. Local experts will be sharing tips and information about energy efficiency.

     Will County Executive Larry Walsh, who oversees the county’s Land Use Department encourages all school officials to attend this event and learn cost-saving ideas to use in their facilities.

     “This event will help our school districts operate more efficiently and save money,” Walsh said. “In today’s difficult economic climate, schools are pinching as many pennies as possible. The staff in our land use department has worked hard to bring these experts together to share important ideas.”

     The summit will offer “hands-on” lesson plans, free energy assessments for schools, and information about geothermal energy and lighting efficiencies. The registration fee is $10 and the event will qualify for two professional development hours. Participants can visit the website: www.pdaonline.org or call (815) 744-8337 to register.
