EVENT: Ohio Efficiency and Renewables Teach-In
WHAT: A teach-in program on energy efficiency and renewable energy in Ohio.
WHEN: March 3, noon - 3 p.m.
WHERE: Room 122, Cleveland State University, 2121 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, Ohio 44115.
Last month, FirstEnergy made their historic announcement that they would close four of Ohio's dirtiest coal plants. Now we need to ensure that clean energy takes the place of those plants—putting people to work on efficiency and renewable energy and moving Ohio Beyond Coal.
