Climate Action Conference at Lake Braddock

Climate Action Conference at Lake Braddock

Supervisor James Walkinshaw will hold his first Climate Action Conference at Lake Braddock Secondary School on Saturday, Sept. 30.

In Fairfax County, extreme heat, dangerous storms and neighborhood flooding are all projected to increase in coming years. The good news is that new local, state, and federal initiatives give all of us the opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint and save money.

The Climate Action Conference will provide an opportunity to learn about local incentives like our property tax deduction for solar, energy rebate programs through your electric utility, and the new federal tax credits available thanks to passage of the Inflation Reduction Act. Fairfax County residents, businesses, non-profits, and faith communities can save thousands while doing their part to reduce emissions and fight climate change.

Walkinshaw, U.S. Rep. Gerry Connolly, Chairman Jeff McKay, and Michael Forrester, Assistant Director of Partnerships with the Office of State and Community Energy Programs at the U.S. Department of Energy at the  conference on Sept. 30 at Lake Braddock Secondary School (9200 Burke Lake Road, Burke) from 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. for this free, information-packed event. Reserve your spot
