switch~ at eTown Hall Speaker Selection

Have you ever wondered…

…what Doomsday Preppers can teach us about selling green?

…why the pitchforks are coming for our utilities and what we can do about it?

…how we can get beyond incremental fixes to build our energy future?

…what we really mean by “utility of the future?”

…where hybrid rickshaws and digital kerosene will take us?

We don’t know the answers to these questions yet, but you can! Buy your ticket to switch~ at eTown Hall today!

Once again, this community has risen to the occasion and flooded us with high quality, thought provoking energy topics for the next switch~. It was tough, but we’ve made our selection and are already counting down the days to another fabulous event! This switch~ is loaded with talented speakers covering topics ranging from energy in our local communities to international sustainability advances. View our speaker bios here!
