The new name for Natural Gas is Fracked Fossil Fuel
Drew S

It helps decentralize the source of generation, and excess power may be sold on the market
Laura Allen

Hello all- How can residents in Florence participate in developing this process to include Coastal Communities?
Ana Molina (She, Her)
57:41
The sourcing of those materials?
Mary Briggs

Local utilities, so they can spread the load during potential low water generation that is coming.

More Solar - City where residents live should be a priority…
Christopher Jones
58:54
Local governments need to streamline permitting processes and costs in order to reduce the cost per watt of solar PV. Whatever Australia and Germany are doing to make the cost per watt less than half of our cost, we need to do that.

Utilities, federal, and state agencies

I don’t believe “personal responsibility” of getting rooftop solar will reduce ghg’s if we continue the expansion of methane gas.
Sue Craig
59:44
Corvallis got a lot going in the community to give loans, etc. to get more on solar.
Mike Allen Florence, Elders Climate Action- Oregon Chapter
59:47
Electric companies should take more responsibility for rooftop solar.
Adam Tate
59:48
Community microgrids championed by the county to help cities and communities source funding and contractors for installations
350EUG Coordinator

We absolutely cannot expand natural gas. EWEB needs to change policy for extra solar produced.
Adam Tate
01:45:10
the majority of Lane County residents don't have air conditioning either, most just have heat.
Adam Tate
01:45:42
That needs to change for future heat waves for safety or we need to drastically upgrade R values for insulation
350EUG Coordinator
01:46:02
Give a few local restaurants conduction stove and ask them to report and engage in advertising the benefits.
Adam Tate
01:46:26
^^^ That's a great idea! restaurants are a big hold out on natural gas
Christopher Jones
01:46:28
Good point, Adam. If we focus on converting to heat pumps, that will provide both heat and AC.
Adam Tate
01:46:40
Thanks Christopher!
Adam Tate
01:47:45
refrigerants are like number 2 on Project Drawdown's list
