This is a very positive move, tying in with the inspiring grassroots initiatives of both Bflo ReUse & PUSH Bflo.
Energy efficiency has great potential in Bflo to create jobs while saving money for Bflo's poor, who often spend too much to heat uninsulated homes, send recyclables to the landfill, build new housing instead of rehabbing old, etc.
Do note, the conference is merely one week away.
