Do you have an interest in community resiliency, renewable energy, and/or energy storage?  Join the cities of Goleta, Santa Barbara, Carpinteria, and the County of Santa Barbara on Thursday, March 14 for the Strategic Energy Plan Stakeholder Symposium! The symposium will be held from 9:00 am – 1:30 pm in the Faulkner Gallery of the Santa Barbara Central Library (40 E Anapamu Street, Santa Barbara).

In this workshop, local governments and public stakeholders will be exploring strategies to maximize the local environmental, economic, and community benefits of clean energy development. From 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, the City of Santa Barbara will be presenting key findings from their strategic energy plan and hosting roundtable discussions. From 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm, the cities of Goleta, Carpinteria and the County of Santa Barbara will be hosting lunch and providing updates on their coordinated strategic energy planning process and highlighting additional upcoming workshops.

The energy planning process and workshop will help Goleta to develop more local renewable energy, reduce its carbon emissions, and explore the best ways to provide clean, reliable, and resilient energy to the community. We need your valuable input to help identify the best strategies to ensure equitable community access to clean energy and its benefits.

This free workshop is open to the public and will include lunch. We encourage all public members with an interest in community resiliency and energy to attend. Space is limited, so please RSVP here.
