Strategic Energy Management for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises

Join us on Wednesday, December 8 for the final installment of PPG’s Green Economy Webinar Series for the year! We will hear from two SMEs based in the Greater Toronto Area on their journey in implementing their own energy projects in a panel discussion. Hear from them as they discuss their experiences with installing energy monitoring equipment, lessons learned, and what advice they would offer other SMEs looking to install similar monitoring systems in their own facilities.
