GRASS VALLEY, Calif. October 24, 2019 – A groundswell of local voices are calling for the community to come together and discuss an alternative power solution for the region. In response to these requests, NID has organized a public workshop for Tuesday, Oct. 29 from 6-8 pm at the District’s Business Office in Grass Valley.

The recent power outages are having widespread effects on our community, resulting in increased urgency to explore local solutions. Taking stock of the impact and gathering input is needed from all voices in the region, from residents, schools, businesses, to local government.

The workshop will take place at 1036 West Main Street in Grass Valley on Tuesday regardless of PG&E’s power service status due to NID’s back-up power generators. Up to 85 people are able to be accommodated in the NID board room with unlimited spill-over capacity in the parking lot adjacent to the building. Accommodations will be made so all workshop participants can provide input.
