“Collaborating on a net metered credit agreement with Green Development substantiates some very important initiatives for our organization,” said Convention Center Authority Board Chairman Bernie Buonanno, Jr. “We are supporting local business, participating in the green energy plan, which is important to the future of the state, while also offsetting the cost of energy at our facilities.”
