Monthly YEEC meeting on May 10

Greetings Everyone!

Just a few quick updates in advance of Tuesday’s KEYS regional meeting at the York Public Library at 7pm.

Please bring a snack to share if you plan on attending!

1. Guest speaker Michael Wacker will be joining us to talk about programs, incentives, audits and low cost loans that Efficiency Maine has for small businesses to become more energy efficient. There will be time for questions and answers. Please invite any small business owners you know to attend this meeting, or forward this to anyone you think might be interested.

2. VOTING DAY May 21st!!!

Make sure you vote “yes” on PACE – question 10 on the General Referendum. We have ordered 25 lawn signs which we will place around town this week. If you live in a high traffic area, and would like to place one on your property, let me know.

Selectmen Candidates: There are two vacancies on the Board of Selectmen. While we are not making a formal endorsement, both Torbert MacDonald and Kinley Gregg have strong environmental and energy efficiency records.

Sewer Board of Trustees: Paul McGowan is running for this position and is one of the most active members of our committee – a prime organizer of the last two Energy Fairs and very involved in issues around protecting and cleaning up the Cape Neddick River.

3. We post-phoned our discussion of “Our Choice” by Al Gore at the last meeting. This week, we’ll discuss the first two chapters at the end of the meeting. The book is available in paperback – but it’s also available as an amazing e-book. I bought my copy to read on an ipad. Even if you haven’t read the book, the discussion is sure to be stimulating and interesting. We’ll continue this process of reading a few chapters at a time over the next few months, so feel free to jump into our discussion at any time.

That’s all for now!
