one community, one conversation at a time....

the company I work for, the alternative energy store, was invited to set up a table at this morning's annual pancake breakfast fundraiser at the natick community organic farm. most invitees were non-profit organzations or community groups; given the fact that Alt-E Store is neither (we're a for-profit company and, well, we're nearly a 30-minute drive away--- in the Age of the Car, I suppose that's technically "in the community"), I was pleased and humbled by the invitation. my supervisor, K, and I drove over in her truck and set out a selection of company and product brochures and biz cards, as well as two or three representative products we sell.

you can see, in the photo, the air-x small wind turbine at left, and the evergreen solar solar PV panel against the wall at right.

it was very gratifying to be able to engage in conversation with so many people from the community, to share my passion for doing this work (which I see as spreading the word of empowerment among consumer-citizens), and to see the avid interest in the technologies and concepts involved in renewable energy systems. there is hope for generating a critical mass of awareness to effect the nationwide consciousness-raising that is our hope for a non-traumatic transition through the great energy transition to come.
