Hi everyone!

Our local transhuman meetup group has an event planned for Sunday that may be of interest to you. We will be going to the solar power plant that Jay (also from the cryonics meetup group) works at. The address is:

Maricopa Solar
8475 North 75th Avenue
Peoria, AZ

Here are some details from Jay:

"I've been working at Stirling Energy Systems for almost two years to help transition from R&D to full scale solar power production. A few months ago we opened our first real plant and I offered to give a tour to H+.


We can't be on the site itself on the weekend, but there is a dirt road on the north side of the plant that has a short chain link fence. The full site is easily seen from there and competitors and others have been parking to watch the plant where you can see almost everything.


Here is an excellent overview video from marketing:

It's probably easiest to meet at Alcor and share a few cars to the site. If you are coming from the west side it may be better for you to meet us there.


I would like to suggest we shift the time to 5:00 This way we can see them at sunset(more dramatic) and also watch them go from tracking the sun to night stow, the greatest amount of movement they do in a day.


Please let Ian know if you would prefer to keep it 2pm or switch to 5:00?


I hope to see you Sunday!


Jay Lewis"

Please reply if you are planning on attending, and let us know if you want to meet at Alcor to carpool.
