Catt. Co. IDA To Hold Energy Workshop

The Cattaraugus County Industrial Development Agency will host a free energy workshop for small business and nonprofit organizations from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 30, at the Bartlett Country Club in Olean.

The lunch event will feature opening remarks from Corey Wiktor, Cattaraugus County IDA director.

“Utilizing New York State Energy Research & Development Authority and utility energy efficiency incentive programs to update commercial building stock provides funding to our local businesses and ongoing energy savings to help the bottom line. We look forward to seeing our building owners there to learn what is available to them,” Wiktor said.

Presentations will be made on programs from NYSERDA, National Fuel Gas and National Grid. These and other businesses and organizations will be available to answer questions and help in the first step for free small commercial and nonprofit energy audits.

The meeting will also focus on available cash incentives and low-interest loans from NYSERDA to install the recommended measures, as well as other opportunities available from National Fuel Gas and National Grid.

All Cattaraugus County and regional small business owners and nonprofit organizations are welcome to attend.
