Don't forget:
Guilford Solar Communities
Program presentation of Kilowatt Ours

Kilowatt Ours is a film about electrical energy production in America.
It highlights our current reliance on coal-burning power plants, taking
you on a tour of coal mining practices in the Appalachians. The view is
unsettling. From mountaintop removal, to the production of haze, to
mercury poisoning, to global warming, the lesson is clear: the coal-fired
production of electric power is bad news.

But Kilowatt Ours is really about alternatives-about energy conservation and the production of clean, renewable energy. The film shows you how you can adopt and promote these alternatives. And it shows you how to save money in the process.

Join the GSCP folks on Saturday, April 1, at 10am, at the Guilford
County Agricultural Center, 3309 Burlington Road, in Greensboro.
The showing will be held in the Barn Kitchen and Meeting Room

From downtown Greensboro, take East Market Street past Huffine Mill Road (East Market Street becomes Burlington Road) The Ag Center is just beyond that intersection on the left.
