To make it easier to start energy efficiency projects in multifamily buildings, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is holding free half-day seminars at the Pratt Manhattan Center at 144 West 14 Street on Tuesday, September 18th and Friday, November 16th. Registrants can select a morning class from 9:30 to noon or later afternoon from 4 to 7.
