There will be a special open house to celebrate Earth Month on Friday, April 12, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Roux restaurant in Slingerlands. The gathering, which is being hosted by the local environmental newsletter “News from the Neighborhood,” and Common Energy, will give Bethlehem-area residents an opportunity to take positive action to fight climate change and promote the use of community solar energy. Food and drinks will be provided free of charge at this event.
Assemblymember Patricia Fahy and Bethlehem Town Supervisor David VanLuven, who are supporters of renewable energy, are expected to attend the Earth Month celebration.
Attendees can stop by to learn more about how they can reduce their carbon emission by 5,000 pounds a year, and access clean electricity that costs 10 percent less than National Grid by signing up for solar energy produced at solar farms in the Capital Region. News from the Neighborhood is a Bethlehem-based publication that provides important environmental information and encourages people to take grass-roots action for a better world. What better way to commemorate Earth Month than by taking personal action to reduce your carbon footprint while enjoying fine food and beverages and enjoying the company of others who are committed to protecting our planet.
Common Energy is the largest provider of community solar energy in New York State and will be at the event to inform people about how community solar helps save money and promote renewable energy.
