SEEDS sponsored a  full bus to the People’s Climate Change demonstration to New York City on Sunday, September 21.   World leaders gathered at the UN for a landmark summit on climate change and people came from all parts of the country as well as gathering in cities and villages across the world, urging action.  
 
In past years, SEEDS, Sustainable Energy Education and Development Support of NEPA based in Honesdale, has held local demonstrations and gone to Washington DC urging the government to take action to keep the carbon in the atmosphere below 350 parts per million.  As it has well exceeded that, SEEDS now is taking this concern to world leaders in what is hoped will be the largest climate support demonstration in the history of the United States.
 
“Each of us does day to day things to show Mother Earth we care, like recycling and turning out the lights.  This is an opportunity to go beyond and physically join with people all over the world,” said Seeds member, Michele Sands.

SEEDS has worked with PPL’s E-power team to help spread the word about energy rebates available to PPL customers. One under-utilized offering is a free, no obligation, energy assessment for our local farmers! Famers have saved 35 – 65% of equipment costs through E-power rebates. Additionally, they are saving every year on electricity costs. Please help us spread the word so the folks that might  benefit, know about this opportunity!

Everyone wants to save money and energy, especially if you’re thinking of building a new house or for any major renovation. A public presentation on Tuesday, July 15th will address how to design, model and construct high performance, super-insulated homes, even to point of having the building be zero net-energy, i.e. where all the annual energy it uses is less than the energy generated. All are welcome to attend this free forum at the Park Street Complex (648 Park Street) in Honesdale from  7:00pm to 9:00pm.

Rob Lewis and Jack Barnett will lead the discussion, which will include super-insulated walls designs for air tight envelopes, passive gains for lighting, heating and cooling, household systems and appliances for energy conservation and modeling the whole building’s energy usage to properly size an energy generation system, such as solar photovoltaic.

Rob Lewis lives in Shavertown, PA and is a principal with Bakker & Lewis Architects. Jack Barnett is a SEEDS board member, interim board president of the newly formed Clean Energy Cooperative Inc. for Wayne and Pike counties, and owner of a ‘nearly’ zero net-energy solar home near Hawley, PA. Rob has been personally and professionally interested in high performance buildings since 1980. He and his partner, Margaret Bakker, designed Jack’s house, which was completed in 2008.

“We want to keep people informed about the latest developments in home building methods for maximum energy efficiency,” says SEEDS Executive Director, Jocelyn Cramer. “This forum will be highly useful to those in the building trades, and anyone interested in renovations to their present home or considering new construction.”
