With a focus on exploring community solar and bioenergy, the generation of energy from food waste and similar organic materials, the first annual Basilica Green Energy Fair will combine panels, discussions, and conversation with a marketplace of green and sustainble organizations, sharing the tools we need to protect our future and serve, inspire, and care for the region we live in. Basilica co-founder and director Melissa Auf der Maur said of the event, "Moving toward our ten year anniversary in 2020, Basilica's commitment is to enter a more sustainable means of running our building. . . . Basilica will move the climate and energy crisis to the top of our mission and agenda by offering access to information and solutions while transforming our building into a model of what is possible."
