Today's events

Yesterday I mentioned some events that were happening in Cheshire today. Both the solar panel dedication and the benefit for Officer Eric Tracy appeared successful to me.

This AM, the Energy Commission and Library had a joint event to dedicate their recently installed photovoltaics (solar electric, not solar thermal). Click here to see real time data on the electricity they produce.

Representatives from the CT Clean Energy Fund and the PV installer spoke. Council Chairman Matt Hall and State Rep. Elizabeth Esty also spoke about the Town's clean energy efforts. Chairman Hall had some kind words for a number of people, including me. Thanks Matt!

This afternoon there were hundreds of people at the fundraiser that included a meal, a silent auction and a raffle. Best thing for the kids may have been the entrance to CHS with the lights going on the police cars and one of the firetrucks having its ladder extended with the American flag hanging.
