President's Message



Thanks to everyone who was able to make it to the Annual Energy Outlook. We had another sold out meeting, with a lot of information on the policy, weather, and economic factors that will direct the industry in 2019.

Our next meeting is coming really quick on February 6th. We will be covering energy efficiency in data centers. Data centers, both large and small, are becoming increasingly common. Come learn not only about the basics of these unique facilities but also the application of the Moltivar Chilled Door solution.
