Water and energy discussed


The Nevada Irrigation District is taking steps to make its Grass Valley office close to energy neutral with the installation of solar panels in the parking lot and storage yard and the use of hybrid vehicles by office staff.

NID Assistant General Manager Tim Crough will discuss these and other steps the utility is taking to conserve energy at a forum Wednesday, part of “America’s Energy Revolution: Can We Afford It?” This free, six-week course is exploring local facets of this national concern.

Weekly 90-minute sessions start at 9:15 a.m. Wednesdays in the Fellowship Hall of Peace Lutheran Church, 828 W. Main St., near downtown. Each will include a question-and-answer period. Coffee and baked goods will be served at 9 a.m.

For information, contact organizer David Baker at 530-432-8935.
