Upcoming Workshops, hosted by Newton Solar Challenge


Newton Solar Challenge is pleased to host a solar workshop together with the West Suburban YMCA and Green Decade Newton.   This is an opportunity for YMCA members and the greater Newton community to learn more about how you and your family can adopt solar energy, reduce reliance on fossil fuels, and save money vs. utility rates. This workshop will help you learn how solar will “look” on your home and how you can save money while helping the environment. You will learn how the numbers work and how solar can now be financed through The Village Bank’s new “solar loan”.

There will also be a children’s educational program for school age children during the event hosted by the YMCA staff and Green Decade Newton’s education team. This event is open to YMCA members and also to the greater Newton community.

Address: West Suburban YMCA, 276 Church Street, Newton Corner, MA 02458

Sunday April 12 from 4:00 to 5:00 PM
