Communities throughout the Chicago area continue to seek new and creative ways to create a more sustainable culture that includes, in part, the efficient use and creative sourcing of energy. This seminar will provide local government attorneys, officials, and staff members with an in-depth examination of a series of timely issues concerning sustainability and energy as they relate to local governments, including discussions of 1) the City of Chicago’s Sustainable Chicago 2015 program; 2) wind farms and wind energy; 3) state programs concerning energy resources, and 4) the implementation of municipal electricity aggregation programs.
