The Texas Solar Energy Society Annual Meeting
Saturday,January 19, 2013
Join us again at Las Casas Verdes, Austin's first true all solar neighborhood. We will briefly cover basic TXSES business, look at the year ahead and solicit ideas from you on possible future projects.
We'll hear from Dr. Gary Vliet, a founder and longtime TXSES supporter. He's been using solar car kits to educate elementary students - future utility users- on power from the sun. A recipient of a DOE Solar America Cities grant for his program, he's looking to expand this learning tool around the state.
IT"S OFFICIAL! THE GRADUATE STUDENTS ARE COMING!
Daniel Noll and Colleen Dawes, graduate students at the LBJ School of Public Affairs, will discuss their study on the diffusion of solar pv in the U.S. residential market. Part of the study focuses on the influence of non-profit organizations (like TXSES) and information networks on the adoption of solar.
Please join us on January 19! Our hosts, David and Rhonda Martin, will again show folks around this all solar development, which is filling out nicely. You'll recognize one of the homes gracing the cover of the 2012 ASES National Solar Tour guidebook, a compliment to David's vision of a solar powered community.
