National Energy Awareness Month Kick-Off Event to be Held at NRCERT

CHP's Energy Solutions Research and Training Center (formerly New River Center for Energy Research & Training (NRCERT)) will be kicking off National Energy Awareness Month and celebrating the training of over 30,000 participants at an open house gathering Friday, October 5 from 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM at 550 Industrial Drive in Christiansburg, Virginia.

Since 1999, NRCERT has provided innovative training in state-of-the-art residential energy conservation techniques, home performance testing, and heating/cooling equipment diagnostics, repair and replacement. It has helped thousands of people obtain the skills they need to participate in the rapidly emerging green energy industry. And with its newly-awarded IREC (Interstate Renewable Energy Council) ISPQ Training Program accreditation, NRCERT is able to provide nationally-recognized, portable certifications to its trainees, thereby enhancing their employment options in this growing economic sector.

NRCERT staff will be on hand at the October event to provide tours of the facility and live demonstrations of leading-edge equipment and techniques. If you would like to attend the open house, please register by contacting Melissa Byrd at mbyrd@chpc2.org.
