If you use hot water year round and are wondering if installing a solar hot water system might be an affordable and practical option, join us at Atlas Farm to learn about solar thermal applications for farms. Gerry Palano of MDAR will discuss solar thermal technology, applications, and funding opportunities. Gideon Porth will discuss his experience with photovoltaics and plans to install solar hot water. CET will discuss the role that MFEP plays in helping farms get energy audits and navigate funding programs. A representative from the MA Clean Energy Center will discuss projects that have utilized solar thermal, heat pump technologies, and biomass.

This event will go from 6pm - 8pm. A light meal will be provided, $10 suggested donation. RSVP by 8/24 to Devon Whitney-Deal or 413-665-7100, ext. 22.
