Kick Gas

🍻 FeBREWary: Time to Kick Gas 🍻

For the last few years, we have been visiting local breweries around the County to make sure that residents have the most energy efficient lightbulbs on the market. And this year, we are taking it even further – encouraging residents to KICK GAS! 

This year, between February 9th and 18th, the participating breweries will not only be hosting a light bulb exchange but members of the Electric Vehicle Association of Greater Washington, DC. will be present to talk about EV ownership and we will be promoting the new EV Purchasing Cooperative. You can also learn about going solar with PV panels or community solar subscriptions.

Join us at an event this month - socially distanced and following County guidelines, of course. 

💡 Remember that you can bring as many bulbs to recycle as you want but we only provide UP TO 3 per person at each event. 💡
