State leaders host Energy and Telecommunications Symposium

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah is hosting the first Energy and Telecommunications Symposium this weekend.

City leaders and officials are meeting with representatives from all over the state to learn more about how businesses, especially minority owned businesses, can become green.

More than 100 legislative officials and leaders are coming to the coast to meet with local leaders such as Savannah's mayor to promote ways for businesses to use energies such as solar, wind and natural gas; specifically offering solutions for young entrepreneurs and small businesses to get involved with green energy.  

"Hopefully the information can be used by local leaders and can be spread within the organizations and hopefully to the citizens to this community," said District 162 Rep. Bob Bryant.

"It's a changing market local businesses need to be involved," said District 2 Sen. Lester Jackson. "Entrepreneurships are ripe and so we are bringing this symposium to other local leaders to tell them what's available to them."

The conference goes through Sunday. If you are a local business owner interested in getting involved and learning more about how you can go green, be sure to contact your local representative:
