It is time again for nominations for the American Solar Energy Society 
Awards. These are awards for people that have made a significant 
contribution in many different ways for solar energy. I received the 
John and Barbara Yellot award for my masters thesis work. I created the 
Women in Solar award. I know that many of the awards do not get many 
nominations. Please take time to think of people that are deserving of 
these awards. There are specifics to each of the award but in general 
they are for people that have furthered the field of solar energy and/or 
have spent their careers promoting, teaching, volunteering or making 
technical advances. There are some great people out there that deserve 
these awards. Please nominate them.


Do you know someone who deserves to be recognized for advancing the 
field of solar energy?
Time to nominate that person for an award from
the American Solar Energy Society
