Green Energy Times has received written permission to place the publication on Level 3 of the Center Court Area of the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC), also known as the ‘Food Court’. Each publication that is allowed to be displayed at DHMC is carefully reviewed, and not all are accepted. Although we have been there since our first issue, we feel that this is an important step that can effect the DHMC Community. The medical center, alone, has the equivalent energy use, and population (including the patient base) of a large city. It is considered, for these reasons, to be one of the largest in New Hampshire.
DHMC continuously looks for ways to reduce their impact on the environment. We hope that our presence there and their awareness of our publication will prove to be of value to them to reduce their energy use and effect on the planet at so many levels that not only includes the building, but also the transportation required by the employees. Alternative means of transportation, including public transportation, car pooling, ridesharing, rail and even bicycle are all options to help to reduce the emissions that co me from the commuting to and from work at DHMC.
Current and future contributors in GET will now have the opportunity to reach and help, literally, thousands of people with the overall message – “We all need to become more energy efficient, eliminate our dependence on fossil fuels and combat climate change NOW.”
