Posted on June 21st, by raskin in Blog, Uncategorized. Comments Off on Historic Preservation & Energy Efficiency: A Guide for Historic Commercial Buildings

A collaboration of Pacific Power, Energy Trust of Oregon, and Clatsop Community College, has produced an excellent booklet on the energy efficiency for historic commercial buildings. The students and faculty of the College’s Historic Preservation Program provided the information for the booklet which showcases projects throughout the state.  The Guide is available to view online or to download and is a valuable tool for historic commercial property owners, tenants and communities seeking to improve energy efficiency and preserve the historic qualities of these buildings.
