In efforts to try and encourage the community to begin talking about energy sustainability, the Climate Change Coalition of Door County is hosting a special speaker on January 17th. They have invited Kathy Kuntz, the Executive Director of the non-profit Cool Choices. She will talk to residents about how they can become more energy sufficient within their homes or place of business. Katie Krouse from the Climate Change Coalition of Door County explains what makes Kathy such a great guest for area residents to listen to.
Under Kuntz’s direction, the non-profit has saved more than $4 million dollars annually for companies and public agencies when they collaborate on the topic of energy sustainability. The program that Krouse refers to attempts to engage employees to practice these methods of sustainability which can then be used both at work and in their own homes. Krouse hopes that the public will be interested in attending this program since there has been so much success with sustainability in other parts of the state, and the CCCDC wishes to bring that kind of change to our local area.
The program begins in Ephraim at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Ephraim at 7:00 pm and is free for public attendance.
