Renewable energies rock!

The Solar NV meeting was yesterday night. Lots of apprentices (yay for field trips), a guest speaker who I really want to talk to 1-on-1, plus there's a member who specialises in green loans. Maybe grid-tied PV is in our near-future! It's going to happen, it's just a matter of when, really. Tannah and I both want it, and Snow is already locked in, so aside from his personal experience in installations and legality of how to go about it, he'll have insight to give us on the process of having it set up. He said he'll stop by and go over it with Tannah even. Very cool.

There were 43 in attendance, an awesome thing. Legislation is really moving too, another great thing. I'm going to look into "Solar Today" and get that coming, so I can geek out even more. Who knew that being green could be so much fun?? All we need now is bale-hay insulation, veggie-fueled cars, and of course the Tagaki, then we'll be good to go.

For those into all types of renewable energies, there's going to be a Green NV summit the last weekend on September, and a Solar Home Tour the first weekend of October. I'll update as I learn more.
