Attendees will learn about how they can use energy more wisely and efficiently to lower their bill and help our region move toward a cleaner, more sustainable future. Duke Energy has publicly stated that if our region rises to the challenge when it comes to energy efficiency, that we will be able to reduce the size of the natural gas-fired power plant to be constructed on Lake Julian.
Come to Green Drinks to learn more about current environmental issues, have relevant discussions, and meet with like-minded people. This is a monthly event and everyone is welcome. You don’t have to drink at Green Drinks, just come and listen. Black Bear Coffee offers beer, wine, coffee drinks and sodas. A limited food menu will be available.
