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!
