This Saturday’s ENERGY DAY

Latest news: Laurie of Recycling’s RE-CYCLE SHOP will kindly be offering some bike tune-ups at this Saturday’s ENERGY ACTION DAY (November 17, 2012, 10 am to 3 pm, School Gym).  Then there’s what you might affectionately call the interested “groups and geeks” energy conversation (all welcome to share or just listen in), from 10:30 to 11:30 am.

The new speaker on solar energy and available home refit grants is J. SCOTT (not J. Smith – see www.illuminatesolar.ca).  We are grateful also to have expert speakers Doug Green (www.advancedhomeenergy.ca) and John McQuaid (www.waterwindsolar.com).

The wonderful Kikuchi’s will be offering food and drink.  There are a variety of displays being gathered for your energy edification, including an electric car display outside the school, and now some info inside about living off-grid on Pender.  Some kids are also working hard on constructing a bike generator (a work in progress), and in the kid area, there will be a series of energy question stations for the young and old to play through.  See our poster and www.pendercommunitytransition.ca for more.  This Saturday is a free, fun, and informative community event.  Come learn and share about creating a brighter energy future, together!
