Our speaker this month is Bob Hemphill, the founder and CEO of Sunshine Soldiers, author of two books and a columnist for the Huffington Post. He will present a talk entitled, Renewable Energy: Good Trends and Terrible Ideas. “There has been a good deal of recent progress in the solar and wind area with more to come. There have also been proposals and actions over the last two years that are foolish, backward, unworkable, expensive or all of the above. Not all of them are Trump’s fault.”

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about how the renewable energy revolution is progressing and what this means to you, your family, home and business. There will be time for questions from the audience and light refreshments will be served.
