Energy Stewardship for Friends Institutions #4/4: Funding for EV Charging Stations for your Property
December 6 @ 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm
A 4 part series to help Friends schools, retirement communities, retreat centers and housing development save money and reduce their carbon emission through new incentives and programs. For the first time, nonprofits are eligible for significant savings through incentives and rebates. Given the urgency of lowering our emissions, now is the time to act on efficiency, electrification and renewable energy! Learn from experts on your options on solar, HVAC systems, lowering your electricity bill and installing EV chargers.
Is it time to make EV chargers available at your facility? There are now incentives for non-profit schools, retirement communities and houses of workshop to install EV chargers. Let’s lead by example and make EVs welcome at all our facilities for employees and visitors.
