Last night’s “What’s new with Solar” Talking Green was our last TG event of 2015 and we had a full house – a packed Moots Factory welcome room, with 62 participants who heard from 5 speakers including solar installers Brightside Solar and Emerald Mountain Energy, community solar providers Clean Energy Collective, local electricity provider Yampa Valley Electric, and economic expert New Power Fund. Watch their videos and download their slide presentations below.

We couldn’t do this without our sponsors – thank you Moots Cyclery for hosting, Butcherknife Brewing for bringing the beer (both also have solar installations at their factories!), and 2015 Talking Green Sponsors: New Power Fund, Homelink Magazine, Mountain Resorts, and Steamboat Magazine.
