Up your Energy Game! Island Way Workshop on May 27th – WIN an electric lawnmower!

Are you ready for the shift away from fossil fuels? OPALCO’s Island Way campaign is here to help co-op members prepare for the energy future that is coming FAST. This (virtual) workshop is the second in a series designed to give members the tools they’ll need to prepare their homes and businesses.

In this event on Zoom, we’ll explain what’s happening in our energy world and share the tools and resources that are available to help members start saving money now while preparing for a more affordable energy future. David Griffin of Island eCars will be on board to talk about the EV Happy Deal, and we’ll cover the Switch it Up on-bill financing program for efficiency upgrades like ductless heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, EV chargers and fiber to the home. Learn about OPALCO’s plans to use more renewable energy sources like solar and battery storage. The hour-long session will provide plenty of time for community discussion. What are you most interested in?

OPALCO is raffling off some great prizes to members who participate in these Island Way workshops: a Greenworks electric lawnmower and ten shares of the 2021 Community Solar Project. OPALCO members will enter to win with each session they attend, beginning with the Annual Meeting (4/24). The more sessions attended, the more entries in the raffle! The two winning names will be drawn on October 1st.
