Tired of hearing only about hydraulic fracking  as the solution to North Carolina’s future energy needs? Well this evening you can learn about offshore wind power in a special community forum at Meredith College .
Marcilynn Burke, Acting Assistant Secretary at the Department of the Interior, will be here to talk about North Carolina’s offshore wind resource. Ms. Burke oversees the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, which has jurisdiction over offshore wind leases.
The forum is timely, as the first lease blocks in federal waters off North Carolina’s coast may become available this year.
Tonight’s presentation, which runs from 7:00pm – 8:30pm, is sponsored by the NC Sierra Club , Meredith College, and Interfaith Power & Light.
