100% Renewable Energy in Keene

Join us for a community conversation about the City’s 100% Renewable Energy Goals

KEENE, NH – The City of Keene and Keene State College Environmental Studies Department invites community members to a panel presentation and conversation about the City's 100% renewable energy goals on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 6:30 PM. The event will be held at the Keene State College Putnam Science Center, Room 101 (click here for a map).

This event will feature a panel of four speakers, followed by small group discussions where attendees will have a chance to ask questions and provide input on the City's renewable energy plan, which is in the early stages of development. To learn more about the energy plan project, please visit https://ci.keene.nh.us/sustainability.

Panelists will cover topics such as how other communities in New Hampshire are taking action to source more energy from renewables, how we can define “renewable energy” versus “clean” energy, statewide efforts to transition to renewable energy, and why making investments in energy efficiency is a critical piece of the energy puzzle.
