New Release! “Full Cost Accounting” (4 min)
We continue our interview with Gordon Howell about comparing prices and watching trends between solar and Alberta’s conventional mix of (mostly coal) electricity. With environmental and health costs piling up, coal looks like less and less of a bargain. On “In the Green” we meet a cycle-powered inventor with a social message.

Playing on Shaw TV – Saturday and Sunday! “Passive Solar” (4 min.)
The Atchisons of Edmonton built a house that has used half the energy of a typical Edmonton house over the last 25 years. Their bright and cozy home employs energy efficiency and passive solar energy for heat and comfort all year round.  To watch on-line, click here:

Barb’s Field Notes - “Envisioning a Solar Alberta”
If you ever wanted to help out the Alberta Solar Energy Society ( we may be called after tonight. A name change is on the agenda...) but didn’t feel you had the right technical expertise, tonight is your night to shine. Recognizing the fast-changing external environment in 2010, tonight’s meeting is all about future direction, positioning, promotion and sponsorship. You can purchase a $25.00 membership on-site or just sit in and find out what’s up with your local solar society – the oldest and most active in Canada.

Coming Up Next Week
A return to more or less normal scheduling for the rest of the season (I hope :)
