ACORN Energy Co-op 8th Annual Meeting

Addison County Economic Development Corporation (ACEDC) member Acorn Renewable Energy Co-op will hold its eighth annual meeting on Thursday, March 31, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Two Brothers Tavern in Middlebury. The meeting will feature a presentation by energy co-op board member Taborri Bruhl of New Haven. The talk, titled “Here’s How We Fix It! Solving the World’s Sustainability Problems,” will offer a big-picture view of existing technologies that could solve many of these problems, and the lifestyle changes that might result from their wider implementation and use. After the presentation, the co-op will hold a brief business meeting, including a report on the co-op’s activities to date, a financial report, election of board members, and other business. Hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be provided. The public is also welcome to attend.

The Acorn Renewable Energy Co-op is a member-owned business serving the residents of Addison, Rutland, and Chittenden Counties. The co-op, a separate legal entity and spinoff from the ACORN Network, was founded in 2008 to help area residents make the transition from their near total dependence on fossil fuels to a greater reliance on a wide range of renewable energy strategies.
