Hood River County and three partners with an interest in energy solutions will host Hood River County’s Energy Future workshop on Nov. 2 at the Hood River Fire Station.
Partners include Gorge Owned, E2 Environmental Entrepreneurs and the Energy Trust of Oregon. From 9 a.m. to noon, attendees will assess progress since last year’s workshop, and look at business opportunities in Oregon’s Clean Energy Economy. In the second session from 1 to 2:30 p.m., the Hood River Energy Action Plan Steering Committee will meet to kick off the county’s energy planning process.
Last November, more than 50 people attended Making Energy Work for Rural Oregon, exploring ways Hood River could increase its investment in clean energy, and benefit from local energy projects.
This year’s workshop will also provide an opportunity for local residents and groups to learn, share success stories and network.
The Energy Action Plan Steering Committee will meet from 1-2:30 p.m. immediately after the public session, to begin visioning work. That session is open to any interested person.
Attendance is free. Follow this link to register.
