This program will feature “Empowered,” a regionally produced film exploring how innovative Tompkins County citizens are exploring renewable energy options in solar, wind, geothermal and veggie oil. This documentary shows how a community is banding together to work for energy independence.
Film producer, Suanne McMannis, who with her husband has lived off the grid for ten years will participate in the panel following the film. She says “If my neighbor knew he could put up solar panels and make money, he would probably do that instead of signing a lease for drilling oil.”
