Chamber luncheon focuses on alternative energy

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The Jonesboro Chamber of Commerce celebrated "Green Week" by sharing a presentation by Nordex USA CEO Ralf Sigrist.

Sigrist was the guest speaker at the Chamber's luncheon that focused on Jonesboro's celebration of "Green Week" leading up to Earth Day on Friday.

With gas prices closing in a four-dollar a gallon, Sigrist spoke about raising awareness about renewable energy, finding and backing alternative energy sources, and saying that now is the time to invest in the future of energy. "Since energy is one of the challenges worldwide and also for the US, it's time to invest in those sustainable alternatives that are today competitive and at the same time good for the environment."
