350Kishwaukee ‘Switching to Solar Energy’ Presentation

February 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A program on solar energy will be presented Monday, February 24 from 7:00 to 8:30 P.M. at the DeKalb Public Library on 309 Oak Street in the Story and Craft Room.

David Simpson who represents Moxie Solar will discuss how installing a solar roof or ground system can benefit commercial and agricultural buildings. Solar voltaic systems reduce operating expenditures and increase sustainability. Joe McClintock who is an energy consultant will cover both purchased and leased solar systems for homes and other buildings. Eric Misbach who is the New Market Development Director for Nexamp will explain how people without access to their roof, including renters, can participate in community solar. These speakers will cover the entire process from help deciding which system is best for you, determining if your roof can handle a solar system, obtaining a solar design, financing, needed permits, and Illinois Shines which handles solar tax credits.

This is a free event open to the public. All are invited to attend. It is organized by 350Kishwaukee which is a group of local people who are concerned about our changing climate. In order to slow the discharge of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere people need to transition from fossil fuels to solar voltaic energy. The DeKalb Library is an ADA facility. There is a parking lot and on-street parking.
