Don’t miss the Energy Fair on April 6 where we’ll explore the math behind eS = mc2 !
True energy security is the result of motivated community cooperation to reduce our dependence on risky fossil fuels.
Every citizen has an important and necessary role in phasing out wasteful energy consumption and investing in efficiency and local self-renewing energy sources. Energy is tied into almost everything we do. Together we can make sure our families are secure and our economy resilient. Together we can transform the energy marketplace and support our growing number of green collar workers. Sustainable Tompkins and its partners are proud to host you and your family for an evening devoted to community energy security. Download the Energy Fair poster and share widely!
Doors open at 6:30 pm to mingle with energy experts and take the Finger Lakes Energy Challenge – our online platform where you can choose your own goals to achieve greater energy security, and connect to resources to help you meet your pledge. Our program starts at 7:15 and will help you understand what is happening at the federal, state, and local level on energy and climate, what resources are available, and what we need to do next. Music, door prizes, energy-related coupons, and delicious treats make this a family-friendly event. Come to the Energy Fair and be part of our community’s journey toward energy security. (Stay until 9:00 pm for a chance to win the grand prize of a $100 gift certificate to La Tourelle Spa!)
