Environmental Nature Center to host "Going Solar" Event
as part of the Living Greener Series
Newport Beach, Calif., June 21, 2018 - The Environmental Nature Center will continue its Living Greener Series with ‘Going Solar,’ a discussion on the impacts of renewable energy, how it has changed the energy market in Southern California and what it means to consumer households. The event will be held July 19, from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm at 1601 E. 16th Street, in Newport Beach. Registration is at encenter.org
Renewable energy makes up nearly 20% of energy consumed in the United States. Greenhouse gas emissions are reaching a new low and energy expenses are also beginning to fall. Still, there are a lot of questions about renewable energy and how the cost can affect communities and households. The Living Greener Series: Going Solar aims to dispel worries over the cost of renewable energy and discuss how Southern California has adapted to the energy market changes. Impacts from federal action on tariffs to state mandates to local utility rate changes will be examined with an open Q&A to cap things off.
The Living Greener Series seeks to help individuals understand what it means to be “living green” in their own communities. With an increased awareness of the environment, we can help individuals bring sustainable techniques and strategies to their community.
This discussion is complementary to ENC Members and costs $5.00 to non-members.
