Energy pros to offer deregulation seminar in Chambersburg

May 07, 2008

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Energy professionals will present a seminar called "Electric Deregulation: What it Means to Your Business" Tuesday, May 20, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Wilson College's Laird Hall, 1015 Philadelphia Ave.

The seminar will explain how businesses can prepare for increased electric rates. It is co-sponsored by Schaedler Yesco, which has an office at 409 Grant St., the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce and Wilson College.

The program will include information about electric deregulation and its impact on rates, energy legislation, sustainable lighting, smart metering and possible tax savings if improvements are made by the end of this year.

Lighting is probably the first area where savings can be found, but other energy savings are possible through changes in heating and air conditioning, windows, roofing and insulation.

The cost is $20 for members of any Chamber of Commerce in Franklin County and $30 for non-Chamber members.

To register, send an e-mail to chamber@chambersburg.org by May 12 or call the Chamber at 717-264-7101.
