Drinking Liberally (Tucson) will have a special presentation this week by Bruce Plenk, City of Tucson Solar Energy Coordinator, and Russell Lowes, Sierra Club Rincon Group Energy Chair and Research Director for www.SafeEnergyAnalyst.org, on the topic "Solar and Energy Efficiency Versus the Status Quo."
The presentation will cover:
What is solar energy?
What is energy efficiency?
What me? Get solar for my house?
First do the energy efficiency thing!
How do I calculate the cost solar energy for my house?
What are the methods beyond buying the system outright?
What if I rent a home?
What are the incentives for solar?
What is my impact when I go all solar, as opposed to all TEP/utility electricity?
How does solar compare with coal, natural gas and nuclear subsidies?
Come see how much your utility bills could be with and without the correct course of renewables and efficiencies. And come see how the environmental impact is being reduced with this massive movement into the solar age.
Drinking Liberally meets at The Shanty, 401 E. 9th Street (at 4th Avenue).
