Solarize Newton-Morgan presentation in Newborn, Thursday Sept 27 7 pm!
Have you wondered if solar was feasible for your home or farm? Come to an informal presentation (that means cookies, y'all!) and find out.
The purpose of the program is to help homeowners, businesses and nonprofits in Newton and Morgan Counties save on the cost of solar through bulk purchasing. Similar programs have been successfully completed in Savannah, Athens and Dunwoody, and have recently been launched in Atlanta and Carrollton.
At the Historic Newborn Schoolhouse, 4326 Highway 142.
Sweep your porch and plant some flowers! It's Lights.Camera.RAMBLE!
