Dear Fellow Solar Enthusiasts,

As I’ve mentioned in our previous post of April 2, 2012 of, I am bringing you a view of SolFest at the Solar Living Institute in Hopland, CA.   The first SolFest marked the grand opening of the Solar Living Center in 1996 and became part of the Solar Living Institute when the organization was founded in 1998.  SolFest is the premier renewable energy event in the western United States. Since 1996, over 80,000 people have participated n SolFest.  This year, in 2012, SolFest XV is tentatively scheduled to take place in late summer. In 2010, the SolFest XIV had outgrown the Solar Living Center in Hopland, CA, and partnered with the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds in Ukiah for a 2-day Solar & Sustainable Celebration in September 25 & 26, 2010.  After a one-year hiatus, we are anticipating much inspirational speakers and activities at SolFest XV this year.  Please check this web site .  Come and take a look at this 12-acre Solar Living Center located 95 miles north of San Francisco on Highway 101( about a 2 hour drive from the Bay area), with the Solar 2000 module grid producing more than 160,000 kilowatt hours of power annually. Heck, you might even find a tree growing out of a car at SolFest! SolFest usually sponsors speakers on topics from straw bale building construction, permaculture, to biofuels, windmills, and solar energy.  Presentations by experts in grid-tie applications, tax incentives, and solar PV and Q&A sessions will also help to improve better understanding of how we may all be able to apply solar and renewable energy into our lives.  Besides learning about sustainable living, SolFest will also bring us music and  fun.  You will find a video clip of the SolFest 2004 at Hopland, CA, below:
