CRES Energy Workshop in the San Luis Valley
Your Renewable Energy Project: Strategic Planning
for Fast-Track Permitting
Do you have a small renewable energy project you’d like to develop? Small wind, hydro, solar, maybe biofuels? Wondering about how to work with local agencies but unsure about permitting needs? Don’t let unexpected permitting and environmental compliance requirements keep you from realizing your vision!
CRES, Grand Environmental Services, and Rebecca English and Associates are presenting a series of strategic environmental planning workshops across Colorado, starting with a workshop on November 4, 2011 in Monte Vista in the renewable-energy rich San Luis Valley. Click [here] to register.
This one-day workshop will help renewable energy project proponents:
Get better organized
Evaluate energy project strengths and challenges
Develop a strategic plan for team-building, permitting, funding, and implementation
Meet and work with like-minded folks working on similar projects
We will include a panel of local energy experts including:
Heather Sanchez and Terryl Jensen - San Luis Valley Rural Electric Cooperative
Marty Asplin - Del Norte
Mark Simmons - Clear Energy
Chris Canaly - San Luis Valley Ecosystem Council
Joy Hughes - Solar Gardens Institute
CRES Executive Director Tony Frank will speak on renewable energy trends in Colorado and the importance of community-scale distributed energy generation for local jobs, a cleaner environment, and energy security.
This workshop is co-sponsored by the San Luis Valley Rural Electric Cooperative (SLVREC), the Town of Antonito, San Luis Valley Ecosystem Council and ClearEnergy.
