The Newtown Sustainable Energy Commission has launched a new initiative to bring solar power to residents and businesses. For the 2015 Newtown Energy Challenge program the Sustainable Energy Commission is working with Direct Energy Solar and Ross Solar Group. Direct Energy Solar and Ross Solar will offer a limited time program with a streamlined process and significant financial savings for residents who want to install a solar system on their roof.

"We've partnered with communities across the United States and have seen tremendous support for these programs. People like working with their friends and neighbors to increase awareness of what solar can do and jump start their energy independence," said Jennifer Coken, Director of Community Programs for Direct Energy Solar.

"Two years ago we had the Solarize Newtown program and we doubled the number of residential solar installations in town. The Newtown Energy Challenge will provide a new opportunity to educate, empower and provide more options for people thinking of going solar and that's a good thing.", said Kathy Quinn, Chair, Newtown Sustainable Energy Commission.

The program will run from October 5, 2015 through December 5, 2015. During this time the Newtown Sustainable Energy Commission, Direct Energy Solar and Ross Solar will host several information sessions, community meetings, solar home tours and other educational opportunities for those who want to learn more about solar energy. The first community meeting will be:

- Thursday, October 8, 2015 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the meeting room at the C.H. Booth Library, 25 Main Street

The Newtown Sustainable Energy Commission

Global warming and climate change are upon us and virtually all scientists agree that human activity is a primary cause. Global temperatures and sea levels are rising.  Storms are increasing in frequency and intensity, causing both floods and drought.  Carbon emissions and other pollution are fouling the air we breathe, the water we drink, and endangering food stocks.  These events are also damaging human health and driving many species to extinction.  

We can reduce these impacts and protect the environment our children and grandchildren will inherit.  The choices we make today and in the coming years can help conserve the natural, economic, and social character of Newtown. While the challenge is worldwide, it is also local. Therefore, the Newtown community must think and act locally to soften the impact of past activities on our future well-being.

While being aware of global initiatives, we will collaborate at the community level to identify areas for conserving natural resources, to promote greater use of renewable energy, to help reduce emissions and pollution, and to increase individual awareness of ecology. We plan to help our community live sustainably and be good stewards for the earth.
