Our next meeting:
The Brunswick Alternative Energy Producer's February Meetup
This February event promises to potentially be a very newsworthy one.
The NAVY BASE Redevelopment Authority is obtaining $200k from the Maine Technology Institute and matching it with $285k of leftover planning money to plan an 'alternative' energy complex at the Base.
Either Steve levesque or his deputy will make an informal presentation on the details and a role we can play in shaping the study.
