News updates from Solar Oregon
You gain an understanding about the natural processes that underlie passive solar design and how building orientation, architecture and construction materials take advantage of these natural processes to provide a significant portion of a home's space heating, cooling and daylighting.
Larry Lohrman didn't imagine his quest for some energy from the sun would launch a green movement within his homeowners' association. But nine months later, he not only has gotten the association to write architectural guidelines for solar panel installation, he's also formed a community group called Sustainable Creekside. CC&Rs cover everything from what the roof can be made of to how high a resident's grass can grow. Turns out that a 1979 state law prohibits property owners from banning use of solar panels on property.
Solar Oregon will be joining other numerous environmental-related organizations at Intel's annual Earth Day Event.
The Eco-Fair has been organized to assist in the understanding of environmental affairs and issues, sustainable practices, and the products and services that support those practices and issues.
Kevin & Claire will be hosting a table at Intel's campus in Beaverton in which they will speak with Intel employees regarding solar energy use in the state of Oregon. Unfortunately, no volunteers are needed for this event.
