Learn how on-farm solar energy development could help lower costs. Coshocton County Extension is offering a program that will provide participants with an overview of Ohio’s renewable energy and net metering policy as well as on-farm solar applications and assessments. There will be a panel of local farmers currently using solar energy as part of their operations and solar energy equipment and policy experts. Participants may receive a free, personalized solar assessment if they bring their electric bill with them to the program. A mobile solar unit will also be on-site to demonstrate how solar technology works.
The program will be held Monday, August 3, 2015 at The Animal Boutique and Villas, 23905 Airport Road, Coshocton from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. A complimentary lunch is provided for those who pre-register. Please call 740-622-2265 by July 29, 2015 as pre-registration is required to receive lunch.
