Does Solar Energy Make Sense in Oregon?

Despite cloudy days and rainy weather, solar energy can be a smart choice for homes and businesses in Oregon. Come learn about the latest in solar technologies and what could work best for you: Solar electricity generation? Solar water heating? Passive solar design? We'll discuss how to take advantage of financial incentives and what to look for when choosing a contractor. This Science Pub will prepare you to take any of Solar Oregon's in-depth workshops, to do more focused research on your own, and even to start working with a contractor.

Stuart Green is a solar educator, engineer, and renewable energy researcher. He is program and events director at Solar Oregon, a local nonprofit that provides solar outreach and education to Oregonians.
