The community of Ashland, its residents and businesses, are dedicated to conservation programs. This is evident in the work of both the City of Ashland’s Conservation Commission and the Ashland Chamber of Commerce’s Green/Best Practices Committee. Both entities address important issues related to sustainable and more energy efficient business practices.
Through the City’s Conservation Division, businesses can find resources on energy saving tips, water saving tips and even financial incentive programs depending upon the type of business. For example, businesses that provide lodging services have affordable access to low-impact shower heads, or restaurants with kitchen equipment have access to rebates for energy efficient equipment through the City.
