Reclaiming our local economy one exchange at a time!

Upcoming Events:

WELCOME to the Feb. 21 GATHERING (formerly potluck).  Here's the schedule:

6:30-6:40ish, We introduce ourselves and talk about anything (typical greetings). We'll try to limit these greetings so that we can have plenty of time for our presenter!
Then we will take about 15 minutes to watch a video to bring us all up-to-speed about community solar till 6:55.

A member had brought up the fact that she didn't plan to attend a "solar" Gathering because she is a renter, and therefore she can't do solar.  Others have told me that their house isn't right for it, others tell me it's impractical for them due to shade, expense, it's too "ugly", their homeowner's association won't allow it, etc.  I urge you all to watch:   Basically, we can all do this!

Then we will hear from our guest speaker,  Cathy Cowan Becker - an expert on renewable energy and Simply Living's new director for about 20 minutes.  She will talk about the development of utility scale solar in Ohio, and a little bit about community solar.

The remaining few minutes before 7:30 will be a question and answer period.

Time: Feb 21, 2021 06:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
