Solar Drinks is an opportunity for folks in the greater Portland area to meet other community members who support renewable energy. Come join us for a relaxed social and networking event where you can speak with Solar Oregon staff, solar industry members, and your neighbors about any topic under the sun! Solar Drinks is a free event, but we are asking for a $5 suggested donation from non Solar Oregon Members to help us cover the costs of providing this event. Join us August 20th at SolTerra in SE Portland and hear from Solar Oregon's new Executive Director, Evan Manvel! Doors open at 6:30pm and the speaker starts at 7:00pm.
About the Speaker
Solar Oregon is pleased to announce the hiring of Evan Manvel as our Interim Executive Director. Manvel has held leadership positions in several of Oregon's top conservation nonprofits. He has served as the Executive Director of the Bicycle Transportation Alliance, the Legislative Affairs Director of the Oregon League of Conservation Voters, and the Research and Education Director for 1000 Friends of Oregon.
"We are thrilled to have found a strong manager to bring us into our next chapter of helping Oregonians invest in solar energy," said Board President Doug Boleyn.
"I grew up knowing the benefits of solar energy first-hand," said Manvel. "My parents installed solar water heating and passive solar windows in our house during the Carter administration, and those investments are still paying dividends and keeping my family's utility bills low."
"I'm excited to help more Oregonian families and businesses take advantage of the huge improvements in the quality, size, and price of solar energy, while helping Solar Oregon thrive," he said.
