Solar Power on Capitol Hill – Preservation Cafe

Posted on April 10th, 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 gave 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 described how solar power use is growing in Washington.

This Preservation café was held at 6:30 p.m. in the downstairs meeting room at Northeast Neighborhood Library, 330 7th Street, NE.
