Green Energy session in Lowell tonight

Tonight at 6 pm at Lowell City Hall (375 Merrimack Street) in the Mayor's Reception Room there will be a free and open-to-the-public information session on the Massachusetts "Stretch Code" which is an appendix to the state building code that allows cities and towns the option of implementing enhanced energy efficiency standards. Tonight's event is co-hosted by Lowell's Green Building Commission and by ICF International, a green energy consulting company that's working in partnership with the city. While a good portion of tonight's discussion will be for the benefit of those in the building and design fields (architects, building inspectors, etc), concerned citizens will also find much of interest including information about financial incentives of up to $42,000 offered by National Grid for "deep energy retrofit" projects.
