We’re plugged in to the conference circuit!

  • Heat Smart

Attending energy efficiency industry conferences takes a lot of, well, energy. Between the long days, the need to be on your game 24×7, and the travel (don’t get us started on the TSA!), anyone’s stamina would be taxed. But the funny thing is, we leave every conference more energized than when we arrive.

How is that possible? It’s the charge we get from connecting with like minds on the full range of current topics in energy efficiency. We return to the office full of new ideas to put in action, a list of new contacts to follow up with, and new avenues of need that we can help fill. There’s nowhere else to get top notch educational sessions paired with valuable networking events.

That means we’re packing our bags. We’ll be at:

  • AESP’s National Conference in Orlando, February 13-16, Booth #402.
  • MEEA’s Midwest Energy Solutions Conference in Chicago, February 22-24, Booth #205.

We’re looking forward to learning what others are working on and to sharing our program ideas. Because Heat Smart is all about connecting with other organizations to help people stay warm while saving energy and money.

We partner with utilities, CAA programs, government heat assistance programs, non-profits and tribe welfare programs. They use our Heat Smart kits to achieve their assistance goals cost-effectively, reach more constituents, and fulfill their program mandates. Bottom line, we help them execute their missions.

At the same time, families tell us they really like the kits, the quality of the materials, and the simple idea of using wool blankets and weather-stripping to stay warm while turning the heat down. Our kits empower them to take charge of their heat bill while improving their quality of life. And at the end of the day, that’s a warm fuzzy feeling for everyone, including us.

That’s another reason we keep going to these conferences – the opportunity to meet people like you who can connect us to more families. If you’re going to either conference, stop by the booth or email us to set up a time to meet. If you’re not going but would still like more detail, please email and we will send you more information.
