Bring Your Electric Bill!
Join Bill Laberge of Grassroots Solar at a free workshop on Saturday, May 20, at 10 a.m., to learn about all the mysterious charges on your monthly electric bill and how solar can offset the cost. You will also learn how to generate your own power during the day from the sun and store for later use using solar power at night. This free, hour-long workshop will take place at the Grassroots Solar barn, 5145 Route 30, Dorset. Bring own electric bill to the workshop so you can review the various charges and have a clearer sense of whether solar is good for you. Light refreshments will be served. For information or to register call 802-681- 3579 or go online to grassrootssolar.com.
