The sixth annual Georgia Clean Energy Roadshow will have two stops in Savannah.
“I started the Clean Energy Roadshow to help business and local governments learn more about alternative fuels and clean energy,” Georgia Public Service Commissioner Tim Echols said. “This sixth annual event will focus on sustainable practices, vehicles and energy technologies that are working for cities, schools, businesses and transit.”
Commission Chairman Chuck Eaton will also participate.
Each event will focus on the economic development benefits, and city and business strategies for funding new technologies in vehicles, equipment and energy generation. Savannah events are:
• June 23, 9 a.m. to noon, 5717 White Bluff Road. Hosted by Savannah Technical College. Savannah Tech offers one of only two certified programs in the state with wind and solar technology training.
