The NJ Green Homes Office sponsored a booth at the 2008 Governor's Conference on Housing and Community Development on September 23rd and 24th, 2008. As national and state efforts increase to promote energy efficiency, renewable energy and green building practices, the Green Homes Office is available to provide information on new technologies, available programs and sponsor training opportunities.
