“Minnesota GreenStar program has been designed with Minnesota in mind providing flexible strategies to help any residential project become green,” says Mike Williams, Executive Director of Minnesota GreenStar, and speaker at the Education Conference.


The target audience for the event is primarily builders and contractors. Architects and others with interests in green building are also welcome. The conference will include presentations that address passive solar design, geothermal systems, proper window installation, and reducing water usage through green design.
