Piedmont Community Church Forum on “Piedmont Goes Green,” co-sponsored by PCC’s newly forming Green Team and Piedmont CONNECT.  Sunday March 13, 5:00-6:30 p.m., in the Chapel at PCC’s Christian Education Building (400 Highland Avenue, across Highland Way from Valero and up the steps).  CONNECT members will be presenting on topics that include: The Culture of Re-use, Planning for Zero-Waste Events, Sustainable Gardening, and our Electricity Monitoring Project. Interfaith Power and Light will also give a  presentation at the forum.

“Now’s the Time! Local Resources to Improve Your Home Energy Efficiency,” co-sponsored by the City of Piedmont, Piedmont CONNECT, and the League of Women Voters of Piedmont.  Tuesday March 29 at 7 p.m. at the Piedmont Veterans Hall – 401 Highland Avenue.  Could you use help acting on your intentions to lower your household’s energy use?  Come find out about three local resources that offer concrete ways to get started:  Energy Upgrade California in Alameda County (rebates, incentives and other resources for home energy efficiency improvements), California Youth Energy Services (simple energy audits and help switching out light bulbs and other basic steps), and Piedmont CONNECT’s electricity monitoring project (community members joining together to become more knowledgeable about our electricity use, collectively reducing our greenhouse gas emissions).
