“Blowing in the Wind” Presentation
October 29 @ 7:00 pm
Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. | Keene Public Library, 60 Winter St.
A vision for a more sustainable future has been coming into focus in the past few years here in New England. This slide presentation will provide a look at the huge potential of offshore wind power, which could transform our region’s power system and create thousands of green jobs for the region’s economy in the coming decades.
That vision involves the installation of hundreds of huge floating offshore wind turbines, which both the U.S. Department of Energy and the State of Maine calculate could feasibly provide most of the electric power our fuel-poor region needs within a couple decades.
The presentation by Doug Bogan, The Seacoast Anti-Pollution League executive director, will lay out the reasons for this transformation and next steps needed to make it happen, as well as current projects in this region laying the foundation for building a sustainable energy future.
