Happenings @ the Freight Shed: Market Morning February 8, 2014

In the south end Community Room this Saturday, we're thrilled to welcome Maine Green Power, a new program offered by the Maine Public Utilities Commission that allows Mainers to support 100% Maine-made, renewable energy for their homes and businesses

Maine Green Power now offers the opportunity to support local renewable energy right on our electric bill. 

Powered by Mainers, for Mainers!

Green power projects that are eligible to supply renewable energy to Maine Green Power include:

  • Solar photovoltaic systems
  • Hydroelectric projects that meet state and local fish passage requirements
  • Wind turbines
  • Biomass facilities that use wood, wood waste, landfill gas or agricultural biogas
  • Tidal power projects
  • Geothermal projects
  • Fuels cells that use landfill gas or agricultural biogas
To learn more, stop by the south end Community Room during this Saturday's market or visit them in the interwebs at

Married with Chitlins, Chris and Liz Lannon will keep us entertained with their toe-tappin' tunes! Liz is selling CD's so be sure to pick one up.

 If you can't make it down to the Freight Shed on Saturday, not to worry! Check them out on ReverbNation where you can listen to your favorites and watch some videos too! Check this one out!
