You’re Invited to a Neighborhood Energy Party

By Timothy DenHerder-Thomas, OurPower/Transition Town

On Saturday March 16th from 4-7PM, the Our Power campaign will be hosting a party for Midtown-area residents involved or looking to get involved in local energy solutions. Over the past few years, neighbors in Phillips and other surrounding neighborhoods have taken the lead on the energy challenge through:

  • Home energy education programs among neighbors
  • Block groups raising awareness around energy solutions by chalking, house parties, and more
  • Groups buying insulation and solar panels in bulk
  • Community solar projects
  • Involvement in neighborhood, Minneapolis, and state-wide energy planning and policy initiatives
  • Local businesses leading the way towards energy solutions
  • And more!

At this party, enjoy free food and music, get to know your neighbors, learn from people across Midtown who are helping neighbors cut their energy bills, generate clean energy, create local jobs, and share your own actions and ideas. The party will include hands-on how-to activities and information about support you can get start your own neighborhood energy team.

4-6PM: Updates on neighborhood efforts, information on support and opportunities, activities, and ways to get involved.

6-7PM: Dinner and conversation

Location: Midtown Global Market, 920 E Lake Street, basement Community Meeting Room
