Letting the Sun Shine on Solar

Letting the Sun Shine on Solar

Rik van Hemmen installed roof top solar on his house and this is a summary of his experience as presented at a local meeting.

While he intended to explain how his roof top solar got installed and worked, in designing the presentation he realized he had to lay some groundwork about CO2 reduction. That resulted in quite a number of pages of background data, with some really interesting tidbits that actually became a technical summary on realistic CO2 reduction. When Hannah took a look at the Powerpoint before the presentation, she warned Rik to go through the first 26 pages quickly to keep his audience from zoning out. Rik did speed through the first 26 pages, but the audience was actually rather interested and seemed to ask for more. The presentation can be downloaded here to give everybody a chance to take a second closer look.
