Green Energy & Green Spaces: Renewable Energy Siting in RI ~ Nov 15th


Speakers representing a diverse group of interests and perspectives will come together to discuss the challenges of solar and wind project siting in the Ocean State.

On November 15th, the Environmental Council of Rhode Island, ReNewable Now Network and Rhode Island College are holding a forum on the often contentious but vital issue of siting renewable energy projects in Rhode Island.

The forum will feature speakers representing several of the groups who are the most involved and have the most at stake in the siting process, including farmers, renewable energy developers, conservationists, and government officials. We expect a lively discussion of what the current reality of siting projects is, as well as how we can handle these issues in the future.
