South Shore Clean Cities- Hats off to you, and to all progressive efforts to switch to renewables in NWI. It's heartening to me that all NWI's major employers are engaged in expanding renewable energies as well. I'm running for Congress on an economic plan centered on renewable conversion, so I'd love to connect. In the meantime, here are my social media sites if any members have time to check me out. Many thanks.
