Feb 3: Sustainable Monroeville -- a Fifth of Solar

Happy Fifth Anniversary!  Join Sustainable Monroeville for a wonderful pot luck party and to learn hands-on practical solar information for yourself, your family, and the community!

After a pot luck in the downstairs program room of the Monroeville Public Library, Hal Saville of EIS Solar will speak about working together as a community to install solar panels on all of the places we live and work.  Help get started in Monroeville and surrounding communities collectively and collaboratively!  When we work together, the price comes down.  

Monroeville is now "Solar-Ready"!  The township's new solar ordinance lays a path to encourage the growth of clean, renewable energy on local homes and businesses.  Energy Independent Solutions, the solar developer for Phipps Conservatory and many other local solar installations, will host a free workshop explaining solar power basics, the new ordinance's purpose, and how to get started with solar (including site evaluation, government incentives and project financing).  Have your solar questions answered and your home or business evaluated at this informative workshop.

We'll start out the five year anniversary celebration with a pot luck dinner at 6:00 PM. The meeting and talk by Hal Saville will begin at 7:00 PM. Remember to bring along your plate, silverware and a cup too, along with a friend, family, and a few neighbors.
