    Hi Dhruv - Thank you for your interest. sorry we missed you. Three of us were there around 7:00 - 8:00 close to the Mall entrance. The other two were by phone. We had a Meetup sign on the table. We are still working on the plan no decisions were made.

    I came to Panera and did not see anyone and I left. May be I came a bit too early. I was wondering was any decision made

    Great start! With three physical attendees in a blizzard, we went over the next logical steps in setting up a community based Alt-Energy system for a town, city or business in the Boston area. This project seems to have great merit as it will provide not only a community based effort to move forward in clean energy, but it will also provide real life, hands on, experience for some members of our group. Special thanks go out to Art for initiating this effort and series of MeetUps. We hope to see more people get involved as this project evolves.

    P.S. Kirk Raper & Bhuwan Gurung attended by conference call on speaker phone.

    Thanks to all,

    Glenn P DeRosa

    I think this is a great idea. I'm working on a location to meet. I have a location that we could do a design and installion project for a wind & solar to battery pack project in the Allston - Brighton area. Glenn
