Hosted by HEET & New Power Tour. We couldn't be more pleased about bringing two Finnish experts to the Copper Country. One is the CEO of a factory in Finland that builds extremely efficient biomass generators, and the other is a researcher at Finland's BioEconomy Center. Additionally, we've managed to recruit an expert in crowd-equity financing who will give us an entry-level introduction to how this process can work to the advantage of local businesses.  It's called LocalVesting, or Main Street not Wall Street. To start things off, our State Representative will be bringing us up to speed on developments in energy legislation downstate.
