USGBC, SC Chapter Upstate Branch October Program - Kilowatt Ours
Please join United States Green Building Council Upstate Branch for the screening of the award-winning film Kilowatt Ours, a timely, solutions-oriented look at one of America's most pressing environmental challenges: energy.
Filmmaker Jeff Barrie offers hope as he asks, "How can I make a difference?" In his journey, Barrie explores the source of our electricity and the problems caused by energy production, including mountain top removal, asthma and global warming. Along the way he encounters individuals, businesses, organizations, and communities who are leading the way in energy conservation, efficiency and renewable, green power while saving money and the environment. This often amusing and inspiring story shows that "You can easily make a difference and here's how!"
Viewers discover how they can save hundreds of dollars annually on energy bills, and use a portion of the savings to purchase renewable energy. Kilowatt Ours invites viewers to help build a net zero nation, by conserving energy at home with clean renewable energy.
There will be vendor area of local companies providing real solutions to these issues. All vendors will be available before and after the showing.
