Businesses looking to reduce energy costs and building operating expenses have a one-stop information resource at All Things Green 2014: Energy Savings for Business. The event, organized by the Macomb County Chamber, is scheduled on Tuesday, May 20, at the IBEW-NECA Electrical Industry Training Center at 2277 East 11 Mile Road in Warren.
This year’s event, which is geared to small and mid-sized businesses, puts a special emphasis on how to get the financing to turn energy saving projects into realities and includes green products and technology displays from 25 industry-leading companies.
• Learn about Michigan’s commitment to energy efficiency
• Discover new products and technology that reduce energy costs and use, including some made-in-Michigan companies

Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel will deliver opening remarks and Tom Bowes, assistant director of the Electrical Industry Training Center, will moderate the event.
