Acorn Energy annual meeting is this Thursday
MIDDLEBURY — The Acorn Renewable Energy Co-op will hold its eighth annual meeting on Thursday, March 31, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Two Brothers Tavern in Middlebury. The meeting, which will be held in the downstairs social room at the Tavern, will feature a presentation by energy co-op board member Taborri Bruhl of New Haven. The talk, titled “Here’s How We Fix It! Solving the World’s Sustainability Problems,” will offer a big-picture view of existing technologies that could solve many of these problems, and the lifestyle changes that might result from their wider implementation and use.
After the presentation, the co-op will hold a brief business meeting, including a report on the co-op’s activities to date, a financial report, election of board members, and other business.
“We are very pleased to have an opportunity to let our members, as well as the wider community, know about the progress we have made in the past year,” says co-op board President Greg Pahl. “But most of all, the annual meeting provides a great chance to get to know each other better and to share suggestions and ideas about the co-op as we move into our eighth year of operation.”
Free hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be provided. All energy co-op members in attendance will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Two Brothers Tavern gift certificate. The public is also welcome to attend.
The Acorn Renewable Energy Co-op is a member-owned business serving the residents of Addison, Rutland, and Chittenden Counties. The co-op, a separate legal entity and spinoff from the ACORN Network, was founded in 2008 to help area residents make the transition from their near total dependence on fossil fuels to a greater reliance on a wide range of renewable energy strategies.
“We encourage anyone who is interested in local solutions to our energy challenges to attend our annual meeting at Two Brothers,” Pahl says. “It should be a great event.”
