Join friends at the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) for a free webinar, April 17th from 1-2 pm EDT. The webinar will present research results addressing fire service concerns regarding photovoltaic (PV) systems.
Included among these concerns are the additional electrical and casualty hazards posed to firefighters when using traditional techniques to respond to fires where a PV system is installed. Though these risks have long been understood, a lack of sufficient data has prevented fire authorities from developing and adopting the necessary safety measures.

There are 254 counties in Texas and the territory is large so the need is large. Look for more outreach coming soon as we reach for $25,000,000 towards promoting solar and wind projects in each county. This is not trying to create more multi-county wind farms. At 25M that is only $98,425.20 per county if everything was equalized. Way before any actual installation is done buildings need to be shored up and main energy waste identified and fixed. This is the most cost effective approach to truly helping our neighbors. We do not want to see projects with an 80 year return on investment which seems to happen with people eager to tout being green. Sign up on the announcement list and we are accepting grant requests from list members.
