|Arbor/Earth Day Celebration in Deerfield Beach |
Free trees for residents, unveiling of city’s first solar panel installation and lots of “green” demos and vendors
This Saturday, April 28, join the City of Deerfield Beach for a dual celebration of Arbor Day and Earth Day. The event will take place from 9 AM-NOON at the Central City Campus (Recycling drop-off center), located at 401 SW 4th Street in Deerfield Beach. The Deerfield Beach Recycling/Solid Waste, Landscaping, and Grounds divisions have partnered to offer educational workshops, giveaways (including trees and rain barrels), and lots of earth-friendly cost-saving ideas to residents.
At 9:15 AM, there will be a dedication of the city’s first solar voltaic energy system, which is generating clean renewable energy and free power for the administrative building on the Central City Campus. All funds for the project were provided to the city by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant program (EECBG) from the US Department of Energy through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The system has already generated more than $800 in energy savings in the first two months of operation. There's even a website linked from the city home page to monitor the energy produced and the CO2 avoided by using the system. The system was installed by local vendors Kaufman Lynn and Solar Source.
