Lyons, Nebraska - On Tuesday, August 4 the Center for Rural Affairs will host a community discussion on practical, commonsense ideas that provide our communities with opportunities in Nebraska’s energy future.

The event is free and open to the public. The discussion will focus on our current power system in Nebraska, renewable energy, electricity transmission, energy efficiency, ideas for community renewable energy projects and funding for such projects. Everyone interested in attending is encouraged to bring their own questions and ideas for discussion.
“This community conversation is for anyone who is interested in using energy more efficiently to save money at home, to help make your business more competitive, or if you’re curious about new investments being made for Nebraska's energy future,” said Lauren Kolojejchick-Kotch with the Center for Rural Affairs. “Join us for a wide-ranging conversation about Nebraska's current energy programs and initiatives that are on the horizon.”
“Knowledgeable professionals including Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) Board member Virgil Froehlich, and NPPD employees Terry Warth and Steve Zach will be on hand for informative and engaging conversation,” added Kolojejchick-Kotch.
