Trade Ally Forums provided insights, training for 200 attendees


Fall Forum Portland

In October, Trade Ally Forums in Portland, Medford and Bend had record attendance from residential, Solar and Multifamily trade allies. The newly designed forums included program updates and opportunities to network with vendors and participate in technical training sessions.

Attendees heard from Energy Trust’s new executive director, Mike Colgrove, about areas of focus and 2017 budget. They also learned about trends in the residential market and how incentives fit into the changing energy landscape. Multifamily trade allies learned about improvements in how Energy Trust categorizes incentives for rental properties. Breakout sessions included technical training from industry experts Bruce Manclark and Thomas Anriese.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the forums, including more than 200 trade allies and vendors.
