Event Description: 

Hampton Green Energy Committee is hosting an Environmental Film Series at Goodwin!  Join us for the fourth installment of this series for a double feature!

First documentary will be “The Revenge of the Electric Car - You Can’t Kill an Idea Whose Time Has Come.” By 2006, as many as 5,000 modern electric cars were destroyed by the company that built them. Today, the electric car is back…with a vengeance. Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of car is America’s future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever. (90 minutes.)

Then we’ll be showing: “Here Comes the Sun” : If it were up to the sun, we would have no energy problem. Every half hour on the Earth's surface, there is more than enough light to provide energy needs for the whole world for a year. This documentary introduces you to the innovators creating the future of the solar revolution. Learn how the economic giants of today and tomorrow are making the switch to clean, local, renewable, solar energy, making profits, creating jobs, and reducing the potential for energy wars. (48 min.)
