The Citizens League is thrilled to be a promotional partner for Fresh Energy’s Beyond Gas Power Pairing breakfast event on January 24:
When we use natural gas to power our communities, we invest in carbon-intensive fossil fuels—and put our health at risk. What would it take to move beyond gas, with super-efficient buildings that only require small amounts of wind and solar electricity to heat and cool? Join Fresh Energy for a conversation with Bruce Nilles, internationally known for his leadership in moving the United States off of fossil fuel, and Sherri Billimoria, an expert in the economics of electrification. Together, we will discuss how to reduce gas in our buildings, and what it will take for new homes and developments to be built with zero carbon and no gas. We hope you can join what promises to be an exciting conversation!
