The Northern AZ Climate Change Alliance is sponsoring an informative community program on solar energy. The presentation will take place at the Prescott Public Library Founders Suite, 215 E. Goodwin St. in Prescott from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 4.

The discussion will include information about the cost and environmental benefits of solar energy, home energy efficiency tips and how we, the people, can help Arizona move from fossil fuel to renewable energy. The program is designed to be an open forum to answer questions the community has regarding the progress of renewable energy in Arizona, and how solar energy/power in homes, businesses and schools can help make a difference for the environment and climate change.
