Posted: Updated:

The Southern Tier 8 Regional Board will be holding a workshop at Tioga Downs on Oct. 24 from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. to raise awareness for clean energy solutions to better meet the needs of the community.

The Board was recently awarded funding from the Appalachian Regional Commission and will be hosting the Energy Solutions for Economic Success event with the help of LaBella Associates, an architecture, engineering, environmental and planning firm headquartered in Rochester.

Together, they aim to review data findings, offer utility perspectives and gather input from the community in order to build better opportunities for business and economic development.

"We will also have an opportunity for best practice to showcase different solutions whether it's bio-mass, microgrid solutions, electric," said Jen Gregory, Southern Tier 8 Regional Board Executive Director. "Then offering that opportunity for participants to speak and say 'yeah we think that will work in our community, how do we fund this.'"

The event will include interactive conversations with representatives from businesses such as Clean Energy Solutions, NYSEG, New York Power Authority, and more.
