Webinar: Opportunities for NJ Schools to Remove Potential  Source of PCBs

10:30 a.m.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will host a training webinar to demonstrate opportunities in New Jersey for schools to remove a potential source of toxic polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) while greatly improving energy efficiency. Some schools in New Jersey built before 1978 have lighting fixtures that may contain PCBs. These lighting fixtures can leak and faculty or students can become exposed to the PCBs. As part of an ongoing initiative to tackle the problem, EPA is working with New Jersey state agencies to provide information to schools and other interested parties to help them in deciding whether to switch out their lighting fixtures. The webinar will include discussion of a specific school that has changed its lighting.
A speaker from the NJ Board of Public Utilities Clean Energy Program will discuss different financial resources which New Jersey provides to schools to become energy efficient. NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) will discuss how its Small Business Environmental Assistance Program can help schools comply with NJDEP regulations and permits for facility equipment upgrades. NJDEP will also discuss on how its Office of Economic Growth and Green Energy can help find additional resources for schools looking to improve their building's energy efficiency. Open to the public.
