What steps is the Town of Conway taking to improve its energy efficiency and what green technologies are they utilizing? How much has the Town saved in turning off street lights and what do they plan to do next? Paul DegliAngeli, Public Works Director, will discuss Conway’s ongoing efforts to save money, increase energy efficiency, and promote green practices. Join Tin Mountain for the monthly EcoForum Series on Thursday, December 13, at noon to learn more.

Paul DegliAngeli has been the Public Works Director and Town Engineer for Conway since 1992. Prior to his work with the town he spent 10 years at the naval Shipyard. Paul currently serves on the Board of Directors for the following professional organizations; ASHRAE, SWANA and NHPWA. Paul has two young sons who enjoy skiing, climbing, hiking, and biking throughout the Mount Washington Valley.

In his presentation Paul will discuss several of the Town’s recent and current projects, including the photovoltaic solar array at the North Conway Water Precinct that provides all the electricity to power the geothermal pump used for sewage treatment. He will describe the renovation and retrofitting of an older town building with radiant heat and a waste well furnace. Paul will also touch upon the Town’s decision to turn off a number of street lights, the savings the town has seen, and plans to turn the lights back on with LED lights. What does Conway have planned next? You’ll have to join us for the November EcoForum to find out!
