2010 Northeast Ohio Clean Energy Meeting - Justification of a Low-Carbon Diet

Explore how the energy used to heat and power our homes and businesses is generated, transported, and measured. We will discuss hidden production costs, the importance of reducing base load needs, and how that calculates into our global, regional and local carbon footprint.  An emphasis will be placed on the justification for each of us to pursue a low-carbon diet by implementing affordable practices to lower electricity usage in homes.  Understanding your electricity usage is critical, so attendees are encouraged to bring a monthly bill to the meeting.  Featured speaker is Stefanie Spear, Founder and Executive Director of EcoWatch and President of Expedite Renewable Energy.  Stefanie has been actively involved in environmental issues for more than 20 years, and tirelessly works on creating policy that will help transition Ohio into a clean energy economy.  The program will also include updates on federal and state clean energy news.  Each family will receive a free compact fluorescent light bulb.  Please RSVP by February 24th to Athan@GreenEnergyOhio.org

 

10 Years of Mainstreaming Green Energy: Green Energy Ohio (GEO) celebrates 10 years as a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to promoting environmentally and economically sustainable energy policies and practices in Ohio.
