Wanted!!! Women in Solar*

Marlene Brown (former NMSEA Board President, Photovoltaic "PV" design 
instructor, and engineer) is organizing a “Women in Solar” panel at the 
NM Solar Energy Association (NMSEA) Solar Fiesta! - this year at 
Albuquerque Academy, Sunday August 27 from 3-5 pm.

Marlene created something quite similar to this panel for the ASES 
(American Solar Energy Society) conference to promote women who are 
working in all aspects of solar to encourage other women to get involved.

Approximately one hour will be devoted to hearing from women who have 
either taken Marlene's PV design & installation class or another class 
where a PV or renewable energy system was installed. Are you one of 
those women? Are you attending the Solar Fiesta? Please don’t reply to 
NMSEA, but to Marlene Brown directly: mbrown at sandia.gov Four women are 
needed as volunteers on this panel to tell their story. More detail 
available upon inquiry.
