On January 23-24 of this year I co-hosted the second Eastern Lighting Peer Exchange program in Boston. It took place at Boston World Trade Center.

This is a group of utility professionals that get together to exchange best practices and discuss: policy, new technologies, program implementations and future trends.

This year we had approximately 20 participants, representing 12 utilities. Patrick flew from Quebec and Leslie from Wisconsin.

The event allows for formal and informal conversations amongst the participants. We have small and large utilities. We invite guest lecturers (lighting designers, manufacturing representatives, regulators, and industry professionals) to share some of their information with us.

The event was a success and we are looking forward to the next meeting to be held in NY.
