Hudson’s League of Women Voter’s “Energy in the Home” (April 18)


April 18 roundtable will focus on individual efforts to reduce emissions

Hudson’s League of Women Voter’s next event for the public will focus on “Energy in the Home,” and the steps individuals can take to reduce their carbon footprint. The roundtable will highlight solar panels, heat pumps, energy efficiency and conservation measures such as energy audits, insulation and Energy Star appliances, and habits for reducing energy use. Hudson community members who have personal experience making these changes will be available to share those experiences, as well as pros and cons and lessons learned, with roundtable participants.

The event will take place on Thursday, April 18, from 7-9 p.m. in the Hudson High School Media Center.

This roundtable will be the first in a series focused specifically on steps that individuals can take to live more sustainably. Future roundtable topics will include landscape management, transportation, food and health. The previous sessions in 2023 gave participants the opportunity to share concerns about climate threats they were experiencing locally, hear from speakers from nearby cities about their cities’ sustainability efforts and learn about climate change initiatives going on in Hudson. The Hudson League of Women Voters has also urged the city of Hudson to conduct a Greenhouse Gas Emissions study to determine a baseline for measuring Hudson’s emissions.

Those attending should enter the high school entrance with a pagoda on Stow Road, the doors nearest to the auditorium. Volunteers will direct guests to the Media Center. An elevator will also be available.
