Solar Decathlon CO-LOCATED with National Solar Conference and Community Challenge Workshop!

I just saw the blog on the Decathlon-- and I wanted to say But Wait, There's More! On days between the Decathlon weekends, in the same location, you can take in the 2017 National Solar Conference, organized by the American Solar Energy Society. This includes the meeting of the Passive Solar building folks and a special, free one-day workshop, sponsored by the DOE Solar in Your Community Challenge. That meeting overlaps the interest of many Home Energy Pro followers, who are focused on the low- to moderate income community. The Challenge projects, organized by non-profits, local governments, and others, focus on solar, but as you know (!) the best way to assure savings is to promote energy efficiency and load management as well. A lot of these projects are working with that awareness and they're interested in building partnerships around all sustainability practices. The ASES conference has 1-day as well as full-conference registration options-- So Denver is the place to be in early October--for the Decathlon and more! Check it out!
