Newburyport Mayor Holaday invites you to participate in the second Community Energy Forum (201 forum) on Thursday September 26th. The forum is part of an ongoing initiative to create a Clean Energy Roadmap for Newburyport. It builds on results from the first (101) community forum held in June.*
Building on community input from the first forum as well as GIS/technical assessments and other research, participants at the 201 forum will review and prioritize energy efficiency, solar, electric vehicle, and anaerobic digestion projects for Newburyport. Experts will also be on hand to discuss pros, cons, and options for local project development with Newburyport citizens.
The 201 Forum will be hosted at Newburyport City Hall, 2nd Floor Auditorium, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm to the public. Drinks and refreshments will be served.
The Community Energy Strategies Program is an initiative developed by the City of Newburyport, Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC), and Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) Green Communities Division. It provides local residents and businesses an opportunity to work with city, regional leaders, and technical experts to identify, assess, and enable new energy efficiency, renewable energy, and renewable heating and cooling projects to serve the City of Newburyport.
