October 7 Tour of Solar Homes/Buildings in Lower DE
Delaware Interfaith Power and Light is co-sponsoring a Tour of Solar Homes/Buildings in Lower Delaware, coordinated by Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) of Lower Delaware—the first such tour in Delaware that we know of. Other sponsors include Mid Atlantic Solar Energy Society and VegRehoboth. We hope you will consider attending to help promote Solar Energy and sustainable living in Delaware and the U.S. at the grassroots level.
The Solar Tour will take place on Saturday, October 7, 2017, 12 Noon to 4 PM. It will be a self-guided open house tour, meaning that tour guests may go to any of the solar homes/buildings, in any order, and at their own pace. The owners will be there to greet them and show them their solar applications and other interesting features.
The tour features solar-powered homes (including a tiny home), a farm storage refrigeration facility (TS Smith and Sons), Public Agencies (Lewes Public Library, Bethany Beach Nature Center) and two churches (Unitarian Universalists Church of Southern Delaware in Lewes and Community Lutheran Church in Frankford). A total of 15 homes, businesses, churches and public buildings will be on display in Milton, Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach, Frankford and Bridgeville.
The recent images and the voices of Charlottesville, and the reactions to them, have been burned into our minds and pierced our hearts, giving evidence to both the depths and the heights of the human spirit.
We would like to offer here the reflections of our sister IPL affiliate in Virginia…as we stand, speak and act in caring, uplifting and sustaining UNITY.
Virginia Interfaith Power & Light’s Board of Directors and members are heartbroken over the events we witnessed this past weekend in Charlottesville. We are deeply troubled by the hatred and violence which led to the senseless death of Heather Heyer, who courageously went to Charlottesville to replace hatred with love and to call for the dismantling of white supremacy. We offer our prayers and sympathy to her family, friends, and community, and we are grateful for her life and commitment to the work of justice. We also grieve with all Virginians over the deaths of Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot, Berke M. M. Bates and hold their families in prayer, asking for comfort at their loss in the line of duty.
