Solar Power on Capitol Hill – Preservation Cafe

Posted on March 3rd, 2018 by Elizabeth Nelson

Reducing use of fossil fuels and switching to renewable energy sources is an important part of Sustainable DC initiatives. On Wednesday, April 18, 2018, Yesenia Riviera will give an overview of technical and financial aspects of photovoltaic (PV) installations, and  how these intersect with historic preservation issues throughout the city, especially on Capitol Hill.  Riviera is the program director at Solar United Neighbors of DC (formerly DC SUN), a coalition of neighborhood solar cooperatives and of advocates “leading the charge to make Washington DC a solar city.”  In this, the second in a three-part series on Sustainability, she will describe how solar power use is growing in Washington.

This Preservation café will be held  6:30 p.m. in the downstairs meeting room at Northeast Neighborhood Library, 330 7th Street, NE.  Hope to see you there!

Look for the third and final presentation on May 16 –  improving energy efficiency of our historic homes  with architect Nakita Reed, principal of Encore Sustainable Design.
