Contractor Conference Promotes Energy Efficiency
Iowa’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives sponsored the annual “Momentum Is Building” conference Feb. 12-13 at the Sheraton West Des Moines hotel.
Momentum Is Building offers up-to-date building science information, practical hands-on information and new technology displays for building trades professionals – including homebuilders, electricians, and heating-plumbing contractors. Rural electric cooperative personnel from across the state also attended.
Nationally recognized speakers shared their knowledge on topics including energy code building/remodeling requirements, new lighting options, updates on geothermal installation, plumbing and mechanical code updates and much more. Momentum Is Building also includes a trade show so attendees can visit with companies and find out about new products.
Support for the conference comes from Iowa’s rural electric cooperatives, along with sponsorship by the Iowa Energy Center.
