Last week, we presented GEO’s Annual Green Achievement Awards in four categories – Business, Academic, Community/Government, and Nonprofit – plus two Lifetime Achievement Awards. Since 2018, we have focused on honorees who are active statewide or who are leaders in the area where we host the awards ceremony!
This month we are sharing a program that has been underway since 2015, and continues today. Beginning five years ago, GEO and its business members have partnered with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections (ODRC) to train offenders through the “Understanding Photovoltaics” program and endeavored to place them in the Ohio solar industry after release.
We need to join together to protect and preserve both. We need to listen to communities whose voices have long gone unheard, learn from their experiences, and include racial and social justice in environmental conversations. Green Energy Ohio is proud to partner in those endeavors and committed to fight for all our precious resources every day.
Green Energy Ohio’s 17th Annual Tour featured solar, wind, energy efficiency, biomass and other green designs with 71 Tour sites featured in bus, guided, and open house tours, extending over two days.
