Hello BEST students,
SolarCity Gainesville is a recently formed non-profit organization
dedicated to fostering awareness about renewable energy, climate
change, and peak oil in our community. Attached is our first newsletter.
If you want to help us in transforming Gainesville into a sustainable
and resource efficient community, please join us every Thursday at
noon at Books Inc on 13th Street.
Some of our goals and hands-on projects are:
- facilitating bulk purchase of solar panels
- building a renewable energy demo center on a trailer
- getting the unused 160 solar hot water panels at Shands donated
- promoting electric bikes and charging stations for them around town
- creating awareness about peak oil and its impact on our community
If you want to get out of the ivory tower of academia and help us
reclaim the title of "Solar Capital of the World" for Gainesville,
please join us Thursdays at noon.
Hope to see some of you at the Solar Tour on Sunday.
Harry Kegelmann, Founder
