OROVILLE – The feature presenter at this month’s Oroville Chamber of Commerce meeting will be Dave Boyd, project coordinator for the Rural Energy for America Program.
The program helps rural cities (including those the size of Oroville) and small businesses and agricultural producers, plan, develop and find funding to implement energy efficiency upgrades or renewable energy projects. These can include wind and solar power. Boyd will be joined by a representative from the Okanogan County PUD to share information on their programs as well.
The meeting will take place in the back room of FB’s Family Diner which has been reserved for the chamber on Thursday, March 8 at 1 p.m. Members and non-members are welcome to attend and network with other businesses and civil leaders in Oroville, said Chamber President Clyde Andrews.
