Colorado and Wyoming Utility Efficiency Exchange Workshops Set for Aspen and Cheyenne in October

ASPEN, CO--(Marketwire - September 16, 2008) - Energy utilities' efforts to design and implement energy efficiency initiatives will be the focus for two innovative regional workshops in October. The "Wyoming Utility Efficiency Exchange" will be immediately followed by a consumer-oriented "Home Energy Makeover Workshop & Expo" from October 2-4, 2008 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Also, the "2nd Annual Colorado Utility Efficiency Exchange" will be presented from October 15-17, 2008 in Aspen, Colorado.

Both events are hosted and sponsored by regional utilities and trade allies. The Wyoming event is hosted by the Wyoming Home Performance Alliance and sponsored by: Cheyenne Light and Power, Wyoming Rural Electric Association, Rocky Mountain Power, Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, Electric and Gas Industries Association, Convectair, with Apogee Interactive and Green Build Technology. Media sponsors include: KING -- All Rock & Roll Hits, KLEN -- Cheyenne's Best Country, and KGAB -- Cheyenne's Best News Talk.

The Colorado event is hosted by City of Aspen Utilities and sponsored by: Apogee Interactive, Colorado Rural Electric Association, Convectair, Electric & Gas Industries Association, Colorado Governor's Energy Office, Marathon Water Heaters, Platte River Power Authority, Resource Action Programs, SourceGas, Western Area Power Administration, and Xcel Energy. Market Development Group is providing event management and logistical support.

The goal of the Utility Efficiency Exchanges is to facilitate a networking and professional development conference for staff of energy utilities and allies serving the region who are responsible for developing and implementing customer programs related to energy efficiency and renewable energy.

The Home Energy Makeover Workshop & Expo event goal is to acknowledge that all energy prices are rising and homeowners sometimes feel there is nothing they can do about it. The Wyoming Home Performance Alliance and its event sponsors want Cheyenne-Laramie area homeowners to know that home energy-saving improvements can pay for themselves. The sponsors hope the consumer workshop will encourage area homeowners to install home energy-saving improvements themselves with products purchased from local retailers or they will choose to hire reputable professional installers.
