The Town of Ferrisburgh is turning green-at least when it comes to energy. With a new 140-acre, 1-megawatt solar electric power array under construction along U.S. Route 7 and a high-tech wind turbine towering over the Ferrisburgh Central School, there's reason for a number of folks to be proud on the yellow-brick road to green-energy independence.
With that said, the public is invited to attend Ferrisburgh Green Energy Celebration, Thursday, Oct. 14, 6-7:30 p.m., at the central school and join in a fun and informative evening to ask about the pros and cons of alternative energy.
Guests and vendors at the event wil include Sunward LLC Solar Hot Water, the Stove Depot, and the new Ferrisburgh Solar Farm will be on hand.
Hands on science, art and literacy projects galore for families and children featuring wind energy. Tour the school's new Bergy Wind Turbine illuminated that evening by the Ferrisburgh Fire Department.
The school will also showcase its on-site compost program and a computer laboratory where power-produced data is recorded.
Members of the newly formed Ferrisburgh Energy Committee will be on hand to answer questions, offer information about the P.A.C.E. program and ask for your input on a short survey.
Door prizes will be awarded. Light food and snacks will be available. The event is sponsored by the Ferrisburgh Central School and the Ferrisburgh Energy Committee.
