Mike Renner and his family live in a grid-connected home, yet they use no power from the utility company. Sixteen months ago, they made the decision to turn off their main circuit breaker and live exclusively with solar energy. Why did they make this choice? What steps did they take to go "off-grid"? How do they feel about living in an exclusively "solar" home .. especially when they know they've got utility power right there at the meter, available at the flip of a switch? 

In this update presentation, Mike will discuss the rewards and challenges of total off-the-grid living.


Don Crowson, Arlington Fire Chief & Director of Emergency Mgmt, will discuss the Arlington Fire Department's involvement with gas wells – inspections, regulatoins, testing. 

Monthly meeting of this bipartisan lobby group aimed at creating the political will for a sustainable world. Info:

Join the North Texas Renewable Energy Group and Plano Solar Advocates to discuss the "Solarize" concept. "Solarize" is a group bulk-purchase process that can help neighborhoods and cities install rooftop solar photovoltaics at reduced cost. Learn how you can start a solarize program in your neighborhood. The goal of the meeting will be to begin creating a network of people across the DFW area that are interested in launching projects in their own communities.

Presentation by Larry Howe and Bob Litwins of Plano Solar Advocates.
