This year is the 3rd annual event and will be held Jan 18th and 19th at the Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland.

MABEP is a group of mostly nationally certified professionals consisting of Weatherization Contractors, Energy Auditors, HERS Raters, Renewable Energy Contractors and Associated Companies.
