Tipperary Pub is located at[masked]th Avenue NW on the north west corner of 16th Avenue NW and 19th St NW., just west of SAIT; and offers free underground plus overflow parking. Tipperary’s is also a short five minute walk from the C train station at Lions Park. Note that we will be starting our regular Meetup earlier than usual. Doors open at 10:00 AM and introductions will begin at 10:15 AM. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday November 17th, 2018.

APRIL 21, 2018 CALGARY RENEWABLE ENERGY MEETUP IS AT SAIT, NOT TIPPERARY’S PUB

Please join us on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 11:00 AM at SAIT in Calgary to participate in a presentation on the orientation and placement of solar photovoltaic arrays on horizontal surfaces. Tracy Duncan, a Professional Engineer, will be discussing case studies of several PV projects installed in Alberta in relation to module orientation and row separation. Given Alberta’s cold northern latitude and the sun’s annual variance in elevation and daily duration, we will learn about the importance of factors that can affect the annual production of PV arrays. Tracy runs Renewable Intelligence Inc. in Calgary with a focus on transforming renewables data into opportunities to improve performance, increase reliability, generate extra energy, and save money. Renewable Intelligence offers consulting, training, and help with business intelligence systems to optimize renewable energy plants. On April 21st we will be meeting at SAIT on the second floor of the Johnson Cobbe building in the south-east corner open round common room. The Johnson Cobbe building is a four-minute walk from the SAIT C-train station. Parking ($7.00 all day) is available immediately south of the Johnson Cobbe building. There is no charge for attending. There is a food court on the main floor if you wish to purchase food or beverage. We hope you can join us at SAIT on April 21st,[masked]:00 AM for an informative presentation by Tracy.
