Guests will be able to test-drive an electric vehicle with the Mass Sierra Club, take a chairlift ride up the mountain to tour Berkshire East's 900kW wind turbine and 500kW solar array, enjoy free lunch, and be able to make the switch to 100% renewable electricity (just bring your electric bill!)!!

After the tour, you can enjoy special discounts for guests on mountain-top adventures. You can:
zip-line at a 50% discount! Optional Valley Jump or Mountain Top zip-lining tour, OR
ride the Mountain Coaster for free, OR schedule your own rafting or mountain biking trip (and get $25 off your adventure--book in advance directly with Berkshire East and mention you will be using a coupon from Mass Energy. Please book your adventure at 1:30pm or later to ensure they get you back to the base on time!)

IMPORTANT: THERE WILL BE LIGHT HIKING (10-15 minutes on some steep terrain) to get to the wind turbine for those who ride the chairlift. There will be more intensive hiking for those who go zip-lining. If you cannot hike to the turbine or do not wish to take the chairlift, Mass Energy/PP&L will provide a shuttle from the base to the wind turbine, and back down.

Event Schedule:
9:30 - 10:15 am: Electric vehicles available for test-driving. (If you own an electric vehicle and would like to show it off to other attendees, please bring it and let Anna know at!)
10:15 - 11:00 am: Chairlift ride and hike up to turbine (OR shuttle up with Mass Energy/PP&L bus)
11:00 - 1:00 pm: Lunch, wind turbine tour, & solar tour
1:00 pm: Zip-lining begins. Mass Energy/PP&L bus takes all other attendees back to base lodge.
