The SLO Climate Coalition will host the Climate Solutions Series III: DECARBONIZING OUR FUTURE WITH BETTER BUILDINGS on August 22. This third in series event will inform and inspire attendees with details and demonstrations of modern home and building technologies that use our most renewable and available resource – electricity. These events will empower locals and visitors to begin making decisions about their own homes and businesses that will make a real difference in the effort to slow climate change and help the City of San Luis Obispo meet its goal of carbon neutrality by 2035.
Decarbonizing our Future with Better Buildings is a two-part event. The evening will include an informative panel discussion on Building Decarbonization with nationally recognized leaders in the field followed by a Building Expo featuring appliances, technologies, and materials that will drastically reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. The Panel Discussion will be held from 5:30 to 7:00pm in the San Luis Obispo Library Community Room and the Building Technology Expo will take place from 6:00 to 9:00pm on Morro St. during the SLO Farmer’s Market.
The Expo, “Decarbonization” will feature distributors and manufacturers showcasing various technologies including electric heat pump hot water and space heaters, induction stoves, whole house batteries, and sustainable building materials. This Expo will provide Farmer’s Market attendees the opportunity to see real equipment and appliances in-use and in-person and ask questions directly of manufacturers.
SLO Climate Coalition member and event organizer Jon Griesser explains, “Taken together, attendees of ‘Decarbonizing Our Future with Better Buildings’ will learn a great deal and see for themselves how easy, safe, reliable, and affordable modern electric heat pump equipment and induction cooking appliances really are today!”
