A conference being held at the DECC is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

Minnesota Power has coordinated and hosted The Energy Design Conference And Expo since its beginning.

Minnesota Power partnered with other energy conscious organizations in a group effort to make Duluth a more energy friendly community.

More than 80 exhibitors with products and services geared towards conserving energy, convened to discuss new ways for builders, architects, engineers, and homeowners to save energy, save money, and save our environment.

Amanda Oja, an Analyst for Minnesota Power, said, “They want to do what’s responsible, and they want to do what’s right for their home. Building energy efficiently is going to last you many, many years, so it’s just the right decision for a lot of people,” she added.

Sam Rashkin from The Department of Energy spoke Tuesday afternoon about where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going with energy efficient building.

Over the course of the conference, there will be 40 educational sessions to teach people how to make their homes healthier, more comfortable, and more energy efficient.

The conference will run through Wednesday evening.
