There is still time to register for the seventh annual Montgomery County Energy Summit. The three-day event runs from Nov. 17 to Nov. 19.

The virtual summit, presented by the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the United States Green Building Council National Capital Region (USGBC NCR), aims to educate and promote clean energy and commercial energy efficiency locally in Maryland, Washington, DC, Virginia, and Deleware.
