Clean Energy Week: Lightbulb Exchange

Friday, September 24, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

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.

Thursday, September 23, 2021 from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm at Gaithersburg Library, 18330 Montgomery Village Ave.

Gaithersburg Library has solar panels on roof that provide clean, low cost energy and an excellent educational opportunity for County residents. Library visitors interested in learning more about solar panels can take out books and other learning materials, in addition to accessing information through signage and public programming. This system has 720 solar panels installed and provides 271,234 kilowatt hours annually. That is the equivalent of powering 22 homes,  keeping 43 cars off the road, and planting 5,231 trees.
