WED • 7 PM • Flett Room

All meetings are open to the public.

In the first hour, we will be discussing the Belmont Solar Challenge.
The current workings of the tariff (the math) will be reviewed. Discussion items will include what costs are appropriately attributed to the solar customer and which costs might not be; any changes to the policy before starting a solar challenge; identifying 2 additional members for this working group. Members we will hear from include, Rebecca McNeill, Claus Becker, Mark Davis, John Kolterman, Phil Thayer, and Kim Slack, among others involved in this initiative.

The second hour will continue with discussion of the Wellington solar project, the potential for solar on the new substation, brief planning for continued work on the Green Communities application and check-in on any  last submissions for the storm water by-law (see below). Members we will hear from include those in the Energy Working Group, among others.

The Pomona Project

Purchase date tbd (late winter)
Before you toss your holiday greenery, consider that it makes a great acidic addition to the soil for the blueberry bushes and other plants you may get from the Pomona Project or elsewhere. Snip the greens, lay them in your spot of 6 hrs or more direct sunlight and await the season. Greens also make a great removable cover for winter in general.
Sustainable Belmont is an all-volunteer organization that has regular discussions, workshops and presentations to enable the community to be environmentally sustainable. Meetings and events are open to the public.

Kind regards,
Kate Bowen, Chair
