From the City of Keene
Participate in a group discussion to learn about the City’s 100% renewable energy goals and share your thoughts, concerns, and ideas related to Keene’s energy future.
The Keene City Council recently made a commitment that all electricity consumed in the City will come from renewable energy sources by the year 2030 and that 100% of all energy used for transportation, heating, and cooling will come from renewable energy sources by the year 2050 (Resolution R-2018-36). This fall and winter, volunteers from the community will facilitate a series of small group discussions called “Community Energy Conversations” to provide individuals with an opportunity to learn more about the renewable energy goals, express concerns and hopes, and share ideas.
Each community energy conversation will be limited to ~10 people in order to ensure everyone in the group will have an opportunity to fully participate in the discussion. The discussions will be facilitated by volunteers, who will take notes and share feedback with City staff. Feedback from Keene citizens and others will be used to inform the vision, goals, and strategies of a community energy plan.
We want to hear from you! Please consider getting involved by registering for one of the meetings listed below. All meetings will be held at the Keene Public Library.
1. Monday, November 18th, 12:00-1:30 PM
2. Friday, December 6th, 3:00-4:30 PM
