Mother Earth News Columnist and Author Dan Chiras Talks Solar Energy
Dan Chiras, Ph.D., Executive Director of The Evergreen Institute, will discuss the highly favorable economics of solar electricity as well as the basics of solar energy -- how solar modules work, types of systems and common misunderstandings. Find out what it costs to install a PV system and what factors go into the decision to go solar. Dan is author of numerous books on renewable energy, including Power from the Sun, Power from the Wind, and The Homeowner's Guide to Renewable Energy. At Schlafly Bottleworks, 7260 Southwest Avenue in Maplewood. Non-profits ShowMe Solar and Renew Missouri will also be on hand with pertinent local details. Suggested donation: $3
Schlafly Bottleworks began hosting the Maplewood farmer's market on April 7th and will carry on throughout the spring and summer on Wednesday nights from 4 to 7 p.m.
The time of the talk is listed as 6:30 - 9 pm, but that can't be the time Dan Chiras will be speaking. I'll post an update when I get more info. But you could come early and do your shopping with local farmers, then stay for the lecture.
FYI - The Rationalist Society will be hosting ShowMeSolar at it's May15th meeting.
