The REC will have meetings today, tomorrow and the first half of Thursday. I conducted three Pre-conference presentations (Remote Energy, Greenhouse Heat, and Biochar) were a hit Monday night with almost four dozen attendees present. there was plenty of overflow conversation afterwards. Many people brought up ideas they’ve had- especially on the Greenhouse Heat presentation.
Now that breakup is near and the road much easier to travel after several cancellations with communities so far due to ice/weather and poor travel conditions. I hope to visit several communities with the Greenhouse Heat (on wheels) and Remote Energy this spring as well as personal scale biomass solutions. Having experimented this year with various media styles to get the word out of workshops in your area, the best way to find out if there are workshops in your area is to check with Administrative Assistant Ann Eide. (She can be reached at 474-7201.
There are several grants I’m working on that will direct classes for the rest of the year- one is healthy homes which radon falls under (as far as indoor air quality goes). Also wood gasification for power is a workshop topic I’m getting out now that we have a mobile unit in this realm also!
