EARTH DAY PROGRAM April 22 focused on SOLAR ENERGY
A big Thank You! to Mark Bolton, vice president for Communications, Marketing and Economic Development at Coastal Electric Member Cooperative, speaker for KMB’s Earth Day program co-sponsored with Ashantilly Center April 22. Mark’s informative and though-provoking talk about Solar Energy and the current and potential applications for this renewable energy source in our coastal region sparked lively questions and wide-ranging conversation touching on solar farms, solar hot water heaters and even wind power. Keep McIntosh Beautiful provided some brochures and a list of resources for those who wanted to learn more. Those attending also learned how to make a low-cost Outdoor Solar Light and could take home a DIY Kit to make their own light. Instructions for the light and the other reference materials are all on the KMB our website under “Resources.”
Ashantilly Center was a great program location and provided yummy “sun-themed” refreshments. Thanks to all who joined us and/or helped out. Want to make every day EARTH DAY? Check out some of the ways you can HERE.
