Almost 40 percent of all the energy used in the United States is used by buildings or by activities in those buildings. (Heat, lights, computers and the like.) The older housing stock and cold winters in the Adirondacks mean that even more energy is wasted in this region than in others. The Build a Greener Adirondacks (BAGA) conference and workshops provide information for local contractors, builders, code officers and others in the building trade to learn more about how new building technologies and ideas can erase energy waste for home owners and allow builders to offer real options for their clients.
The 2017 Build a Greener Adirondacks Conference took place on March 23rd.
