  NOVEMBER 1: Free Lecture on Solar Power at Albuquerque Academy - ABQ

6:30-7:45 p.m.
Simms Center for the Performing Arts, Auditorium

  //"Solar is Power - How Photovoltaic Technologies are Changing our
  Energy Future"//

While the first solar cells were constructed in the 1880's, only in the 
past few years has solar power made economic sense as a source of 
residential and commercial electricity. New technologies and 
manufacturing efficiencies are making solar photovoltaics (PV) even more 
cost effective. In this lecture, we will explore these new technologies 
and discuss how solar power is poised to radically alter the world's 
energy landscape.

*/Rusty Schmit/*/ is a globally recognized leader in the field, with 30 
years experience in the solar energy sector. Rusty began his career in 
solar technology development at Motorola and Texas Instruments. As CEO 
of Photowatt, a French solar manufacturer, Rusty initiated and 
supervised a wide range of global projects, from solar powered water 
pumping in sub-Saharan Africa to solar powered parking meters in 
Albuquerque, New Mexico. Prior to co-founding CleanSwitch, Rusty founded 
and led New Mexico-based Advent Solar, a solar technology design and 
engineering firm that was recently acquired by Applied Materials./

*NOVEMBER 11: NMSEA Sustainable Las Vegas - Chapter Meeting - Las Vegas, 

The next meeting of Sustainable Las Vegas (the local chapter of the New 
Mexico Solar Energy Association) will be Thursday, November 11, at 5:15 
p.m., at NMHU Donnelly Library, Rm. 325.  Joaquin Karcher will speak on 
the topic, "The most affordable approach to Zero Energy Homes."

Mr. Karcher is an architect with zero e design (www.zeroedesign.com 
<http://www.zeroedesign.com>) in Taos and his homes conform to the 
principles of the passive house, a design concept from Germany 
(www.passivehouse.us <http://www.passivehouse.us>).  Since affordability 
is a major concern in Northern New Mexico he will focus on that.

Zero energy or zero net energy are terms that describes homes that by 
design use very little energy and what energy is needed is provided by 
renewable sources.
