April 2015 Biannual Trade Ally Forums

If you weren't able to attend the Biannual Trade Ally Forums, or attended and would like to review and share the presentations, the slides are posted below.

The Biannual Trade Ally Forums replace our previous quarterly Trade Ally Roundtables and will be held twice in 2015 with the goal of sharing news about Energy Trust and connecting with trade allies throughout the state.

The updated biannual forums are your chance to hear from Energy Trust program representatives, network with others in the industry, talk to vendors, access valuable training and share your insights. The focus is on residential, Solar and Multifamily trade allies, but all trade allies are welcome to attend and connect with Energy Trust staff.
