Looking for fun activities for your kids? Or how about a new wildlife documentary film screening? Or maybe, a workshop on gardening or bike repair? Our calendar features upcoming community events for those who enjoy a mix of outdoors, activism, creativity, and learning.
National Clean Energy Week is a celebration of the policies, industries, and innovations that power our daily lives while producing no or very little greenhouse gas emissions. Despite the very real technological and political challenges, a clean energy future is in our reach, and America is ready to lead the way.
As part of Clean Energy Week 2021, the Lighten Up lemonade stand will be at various locations throughout the County. All of these locations support clean energy in some way.
Wednesday, September 22, 2021 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm at Mid-County DHHS Building, 1301 Piccard Dr., Rockville, MD 20850
The Office of Home Energy Programs (OHEP) is housed within the Mid-County Department of Health and Human Services Building. This building is host to electric vehicle charging stations. They are from I have from Chargepoint. On any given day, the County is charging one of their many Chevy Bolts into the charging stations. These electric cars can drive for about 250 miles per charge. These electric vehicles reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions—and noise pollution—added to the environment.
OHEP provides bill assistance to low-income households in the State of Maryland to make their energy costs more affordable and to help with the prevention of loss and the restoration of home energy service. For these events, we will be providing residents with Home Comfort Kits in addition to the light bulb exchange.
