Upcoming Green Night – September 14, 2016

Please join us for the exciting kick-off to the Fall, 2016, series of Green Night gatherings that take place the second Wednesday of each month. State Senator Benjamin Downing, who chairs the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy in the Massachusetts Legislature, is our expert presenter for the meeting Wednesday, September 14, 2016, beginning at 5:00 P.M. at the Platform Sports Bar, 125A Pleasant Street, Northampton, MA.

We have asked Senator Downing to share his thoughts about his work on energy issues in the State Senate and the process that led to the recently passed omnibus energy bill which will stimulate a new offshore wind industry, but left energy efficiency initiatives and solar energy unaddressed. We have also asked him to offer his advice and his vision for achieving the next important steps in state energy policy, for renewables and energy efficiency in particular.

From 5:00-5:30 grab a drink or order food and chat with others. At 5:30 it’s time to share news, events and make your announcements. The featured presentation begins at 6:00 with Q & A following. At 7:00 we move into the bar where energy is high and we continue with conversations, networking and more food and drink.
