Subject: Renewable Energy Workshop TOMORROW EVENING

 

Our two-part Renewable Energy series kicks off tomorrow night at Hingham Town Hall with a workshop on local zoning, public education, and information sharing!  Please join us for this informative and informational workshop, and share this invitation with other members of your local energy committee/working group, municipal staff, and other folks active in the renewable energy scene.  RSVP to [address removed] so we know how many people are coming (though walk-ins are always welcome.)

 

See you Thursday!
