BOSTON (AP) — Environmental groups are planning to hold a town hall event in Boston to discuss the push to 100 percent renewable energy.

Advocates say society needs to wean itself off of fossil fuels. They say that's only possible by ramping up the reliance on energy sources like solar and wind power, which don't contribute to climate change.

While renewable energy sources have increased in recent years, they still make up a fraction of the state's total energy source.

Those speaking at the town hall include representatives from Harvard University's Center For Health and the Global Environment, Northeastern University's Center for Renewable Energy Technology, and members of the advocacy group Environment Massachusetts.

The meeting is scheduled for Monday at 6:30 p.m. at the Old South Church in Boston.
