Grand Valley State University's Meijer Campus in Holland will host a community energy conversation. The meeting is on November 15th at 3pm in Room 104 at GVSU Holland. This energy conversation is open to anyone who has interest in conserving energy in the community, local businesses, and at home; staff, students, and community members are invited. Please do not miss out on our dynamic speaker, Don Triezenberg, from The Community Energy Advisory group. Refreshments will be provided.
Please RSVP by emailing Emily at: email@example.com or call 616-394-4848. There will be a question and answer portion to the presentation and a “call to action” portion where individuals can bring what they have learned to their work place or community.
The Community Energy Advisory Group organizes a series of shareholder meetings with the goal of educating Holland on the energy choices their City Council is facing. CEAG believes that an investment of this magnitude is a community issue; the group is devoted to informing stakeholders of the decisions Holland faces and the options available to meet the city’s energy needs.
Why Talk About This?
Community energy planning involves long-term consequences. The decisions made today and tomorrow will be with Holland for generations. This is your community and it needs to be your decision. We need a robust community conversation to comprehensively address Holland’s energy future, rather than focusing solely on specific fuel types and individual power plants. More than any other community issue, energy decisions will have a long range and “permanent” effect on our families, businesses and city budget by affecting the economic development, health and environment of our community. Good solutions for complex issues require broad interaction among well-informed people of good will!
