Renewable Energy Challenge
Did you miss the Green Team’s Shabbat Lunch and Learn in October about Renewable Energy? No worries! Our Renewable Energy Challenge is continuing until April 19, 2019-Passover time. Please check out the handout from the event which contains step by step instructions on how to change your home energy provider from PECO to 100% renewable energy – and save money at the same time! It’s a small effort with a big impact for the environment.
Once you’ve done this, please let Mira Olson or Johanna Werbach (committee chairs) know, so we can track the number of families that have made the switch. Join the Climate Action Expo at Haverford College on Sunday November 4 co-sponsored by Penn Environment, featuring Renewable Energy Workshops and Vendors – please see attached flyer for more information.
