Dan's job as a solar energy design engineer lets him travel extensively
throughout many foreign countries, especially in Asia. He will share
some of his extensive photo collection of renewable energy in use around
the world. He will also highlight various environmental issues, and
what's being done to address the problems. After all, no matter where
you live, we all share the same air and water.

About our Presenter

Dan has a 39 year commitment to renewable solar energy, conservation
and building a sustainable future. He now serves as Senior Engineer for
Fort Worth-based Exeltech designing equipment to connect solar
electricity to the utility grid.


He is a respected expert and advocate for all things renewable and
sustainable. He's been a member of the technical editing staff for Home
Power Magazine, Co-host on nationally syndicated Mother Earth News
Radio, and much more. In his "spare time" he designed and built the
Solar Shuttle. The Shuttle showcases two full-size fully independent
portable solar electric systems capable of powering a modest energy
efficient home. The Shuttle provides power for various environmental
event sound stages, emergency communications, and other needs.


Dan lived eight years off–grid (no commercial utility power) with wind
and solar power, and has spent the last eight years in a grid-connected
home with solar electric and solar hot water. Dan is a friend and
advisor of the North Texas Renewable Energy Group.

Our August meeting is part of NTREG's ongoing series of
member-driven presentations, where at each meeting, our attendees select
topics for future meetings.
