Since the conference began in 1993, the Momentum is Building Conference mission is to provide a forum for energy efficiency and electric technology education. The conference seeks to build relationships with trade professionals who influence electric co-op members' decision-making about home building/remodeling, heating, cooling, water heating and energy efficiency.
Momentum is Building continues to offer up-to-date building science information, practical hands-on details and new technology displays for building trades professionals - including home builders, electricians, and heating-plumbing contractors. Rural electric cooperative personnel from across Iowa join their local contractors at the conference.
Attendees from Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative include Tim Plumb and Alan Mumm.
"For many years, Momentum is Building, has allowed building trades professionals from our area to find out what's new in the industry - techniques as well as products. Attendees also obtain continuing education credits they need to stay current in their professions." - Tim Plumb, Member Services Director
Nationally recognized speakers shared their knowledge on topics including the future of home building, electric and mechanical/plumbing code updates, energy remodeling and safety. Momentum is Building also includes a trade show where participants visit with companies to learn about new products.
Support for the conference comes from Iowa's rural electric cooperatives, along with sponsorship by the Iowa Energy Center.
