Award Presentation with Senator Emmett Hanger
Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) Campus Center Building

solarjobs.jpgSierra Club will present Senator Hanger (R-24) with a Leadership Award on Monday, July 21st for his work on a successful piece of legislation that eradicates a major tax barrier to solar energy. Until now, localities could tax solar panels as manufacturing equipment, making solar power prohibitively expensive. Senate Bill 418 extends a tax exemption to solar equipment so they are no longer taxed by localities as "machinery and tools".

Join us for a light reception, and mini-tour of EMU's solar installation.

The event will take place at the Campus Center Building, located on Smith Avenue; visitor parking is available across the street. View a map of EMU’s campus here.

Time: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
1200 Park Rd
Harrisonburg, VA 22802
