The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) invites you to participate in a Community Energy 201 Forum on Wednesday, February 19th. The forum is part of an ongoing initiative to create a Clean Energy Roadmap for the MAPC region by drawing on the experiences and knowledge of residents of Salem, Swampscott, Hamilton and Wenham. This forum will build on the input received from participants at the first Community 101 Forum held October 17.*
Participants at the Community 201 Forum will work with renewable energy technical experts to prioritize clean energy projects. Experts in various renewable energy technologies will discuss pros, cons, and options for local project development.
