SNEW’s Climate and Energy Outlook Series: Sutter, Yuba, and Butte Counties
April 27, 2022, at 12 p.m.
The environment has a significant impact on energy use and productivity. Reduced stream flows can weaken hydropower. Storms and wildfire risks can force utility public power shut offs. And hotter conditions can drive energy demand for cooling. While these disturbances are likely to continue, sustainable energy use reduces emissions, cuts costs on utility bills, and enables people and communities to better adapt.
Thus, the Sierra Business Council’s Sierra Nevada Energy Watch (SNEW) program has designed its Climate and Energy Outlook Series, a catalog of climate projections and related energy impacts for each county in its territory. The goal is to highlight changing circumstances within each jurisdiction and begin conversations around potential energy solutions.
Join SNEW in this session on April 27 at 12 p.m. as we focus on counties in the North Central area: Sutter, Yuba, and Butte.
Please feel free to contact email@example.com if you have any questions.
For more information please see the event website.
Date: April 27
Time: 12 p.m. – 1 p.m.
Organizer: Sierra Business Council
