Subject: Come to a meeting on sourcing Northfield's energy needs from a Community Solar Garden

Have you been looking for an opportunity to reduce your carbon emissions at home or work, and not finding many options outside Xcel's WindSource Program?

What if there were a Northfield-based source of alternative energy that met our needs?

You are invited to attend a Northfield meeting to discuss “Community Solar Gardens”.  Solar Gardens are community owned solar arrays (on the edge of town or on some large church, school, or business' flat roof).  It is a way for communities to begin “going solar” with many different membership prices, and regardless of your home, church or business’ solar exposure.  

Please join us on Friday, Feb. 14th9-10 am, in the UCC church parlor
(just off the assembly room/social hall)   [First United Church of Christ, 300 Union St., Northfield]

Also invite anyone and everyone who cares about reducing our reliance on oil and coal and reducing CO2 emissions.

Please take some time to view this website www.solargardens.org before you come to the meeting.  It will give you background on solar gardens and answer many of your initial questions. It provides basic information on starting a Community Solar Garden and neatly frames the topic by talking about the Project/ the Policy/ the People.

This could be an important way to gather momentum from January's Northfield Climate Summit, and turn that momentum into concrete action in Northfield.

If you know church or business leaders who would be interested in exploring the idea, please pass this invitation to them.
