Community level renewable opportunities
This workshop will focus on community solar opportunities, clean energy investments, carbon markets and advocating for environmental stewardship. When William Penn granted land to Friends, he could never have imagined that Pennsylvania would become ground zero for polluting fuels from coal to oil to gas. As we move away from the fossil fuels that are putting our future in peril, learn how Friends can take leadership in modeling and advocating for local, safe, clean energy.
