March For 100% Renewable Energy in the Christmas Parade Dec. 6 đź’Ą

CLEAN, SAFE ENERGY. RIGHT HERE. RIGHT NOW.

Will you march with us for 100% renewable energy on December 6th 5:30-9 p./m. in West Chester?

Maybe you are someone who started marching for the climate in DC on a bitter February (2013) or in NY at the People’s Climate Marches (April 2014 and 2017). Or maybe you joined the March for Science or the one in November 2015 before the Paris Climate talks.

Closer to home, you have an opportunity to bring our positive, solution focused message to thousands of residents in southeastern PA at the annual West Chester Christmas Parade on Friday December 6th!

This is one way we can support the Youth Climate movement which is calling for action on December 6th. As world leaders gather at the UN’s annual climate conference, young people across America will join a national #ClimateStrike to take the momentum from their September strike to elected officials’ doorsteps.

We’ve planned a great Clean Energy Contingent. We’ll have signs for each of the 25 communities that have passed  resolutions EV cars dressed as reindeer “pulling” Santa’s sleigh (a red EV) a beautiful sun puppet wind turbines clean energy banners a banner for each of our county groups Come help us share the good news about renewable, clean energy by marching and proudly carrying a sign, poster or banner.

To learn more, register  here, no later than November 20th

Important Upcoming date
Dress rehearsal:  Sunday November 24 2:00-4:00pm (Location to be determined; check calendar here)

Chester County Clean Energy Tour

Don’t miss it: Saturday, October 19, 2019, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Did you know Chester County is a state leader in solar energy and energy efficiency? Across the County, 20.88 MW are produced in 839 Installations (#2 in PA). Join us for a tour of exemplary clean energy projects at our schools, universities, businesses, farms, non-profits, municipalities and homes. Be inspired at this FREE event that features self-guided tours and open house tours across the County.

The logos to the left show sponsors of the Chesco tour. There will be more! Note that Chester County’s topic for the day is much broader than the national solar theme.

Kick-off events will provide an orientation and suggested route. The homes, businesses, and public places you visit will demonstrate green technologies such as solar, wind, geothermal, green design, energy efficiency, electric vehicles and more. Learn how your home, workplace, local schools and municipal facilities can be part of the transition to cleaner, safer renewable energy.
