The annual Go Green Energy Conference hosted by Congressmen Roscoe Bartlett provided practical ways for people to save money use less energy and help the country transition to domestic, cleaner, and renewable energy sources on July 9 at the Frederick County Fair Grounds.
FORT DETRICK, Md. - Army leaders met here for day one of the first Net Zero Workshop, June 14. The three-day conference brings together leaders from over 20 installations chosen by the Army to discuss sustainability practices and share information to better reduce energy and water usage as well as the amount of waste created.
As part of the Army's overall effort to conserve precious resources, net zero installations will consume only as much energy or water as they produce and eliminate solid waste to landfills. Instead of thinking about today, thinking about 50 years from now when our children and their families are here.
