“Why Solar?” presentation, Nov 22

SPC’s Florida Engineering Society student chapter is coordinating a presentation discussing the benefits of solar power on Monday, November 22, 2010.  The SPC Clearwater Campus (2465 Drew Street, Clearwater) lecture runs from 12:15pm – 1:30pm in the teaching Auditorium (TA).

Les Aseere, a Sr. Application and Product Development Engineer for Johns Manville E3co will give a presentation overviewing solar technology, business financials, and materials.  This is a great opportunity to learn about what the cutting edge of solar energy has to offer as an alternative energy source, learn about the materials used in the production of the different solar panels, and learn about the financials involved with solar panels.

Join us as we explore the future of solar technology!

This event is free and open to everyone. Snacks will be available.

who we are:

Early in 2008, St. Petersburg College recognized its responsibility to model to our students, employees and community ways to minimize global warming emissions and provide the knowledge to our graduates to help achieve a more environmentally friendly future. Because of this, the College made sustainability (defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) a top priority. As a result, the Office for Sustainability was established.

what we do:

Working alongside internal and external partners, the Office for Sustainability focuses on the following areas of environmental stewardship: educational programs and corporate training, energy and natural resource conservation, green buildings and facilities, carbon emissions, recycling and student activities.
