We have just witnessed an election that resulted in unexpected and
seismic changes to the political landscape of our country.
Regardless of which candidate you supported, it is safe to say that the results are not good for solar energy or the environment. Therefore, expanding and strengthening the role of SolarFest could not happen at a more crucial time. We encourage you to become more involved in this critical struggle.
After the success of our recent movie night – and with the results of the November election in mind – we are planning a variety of future events including how to engage politicians and others who may not share our concern for the environmental benefits of renewable energy but who are concerned about the financial, economic and job benefits. Emphasizing those benefits will result in greater success in bringing more people to support renewable energy and help respond to the attacks of special interests.
We sincerely hope that you will join us as we redouble our efforts in support of energy education and climate protection and become more involved in our struggle for a fair, just, clean energy future.
To all who were part of making the 2016 Sunrise Celebration a success: Thank You!
We are busy planning a range of events for 2017 — please contact us if you are interested in helping.
