Getting to Green with a Green Revolving Fund Webinar

August 20, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

School districts and campuses across the country who face annual budget cuts and unstable energy markets are finding it increasingly difficult to finance much needed energy efficiency upgrades. The good news is that an innovative solution exists called the Green Revolving Fund (GRF). This webinar will teach you about the virtuous cycle of a GRF and the value that a dedicated internal capital fund could bring to your school system. Learn about Sustainable Endowments Institute’s industry recognized resources such as their GRF Implementation Guide and GRITS platform to manage renewable energy, sustainability and energy efficiency projects. Participants will also hear from Kristen Trovillion, Sustainability Coordinator at Grand Rapids Public Schools about how their district made the case for a GRF and lessons they have learned after operating the fund for a couple of years.
